Although King Leopold's Ghost dwells perhaps too long on the viciousness, it does offer clues on how it became a circle. Full Review

L.A. Weekly
King Leopold's Ghost is an often infuriating (and excruciating) film to watch, but one that gets to the root of the despair that now plagues so much of the African continent. Full Review
Jack Mathews
New York Daily News
This brilliant documentary, which shows not only how Belgian King Leopold II made the huge and resource-rich central African Congo his own private reserve, but how his legacy of exploiting the land and brutalizing its people continues in modern times. Full Review
Joshua Land
Village Voice
Sleeker and more ambitious than the 2003 BBC-produced "Congo: White King, Red Rubber, Black Death," which focused more narrowly on long-suppressed Belgian atrocities of that era. Full Review
Manohla Dargis
The New York Times
Ms. Scott's outrage is palpable, but she has bitten off enough here for a 10-hour television series. Full Review
