Village Voice
The doctors' motivations remain somewhat enigmatic, even as the two veterans emerge as more fully drawn characters. Full Review
A.O. Scott
The New York Times
The extent of the need around the world is so enormous and overwhelming that the efforts of the doctors in this sobering film seem both vitally necessary and woefully inadequate. Full Review
Joe Morgenstern
Wall Street Journal
Living in Emergency is anything but bleeding-heart propaganda. Full Review
Kevin Thomas
Los Angeles Times
Dynamic, informal and observant yet, while never grueling, it offers a constant provocative contrast between backgrounds of spectacular and beautiful natural scenery and primitive living conditions. Full Review
Kimberley Jones
Austin Chronicle
Living in Emergency, then, is like a hard slap to the face: There is nothing remotely romantic about this grim depiction of two missions in Liberia and Congo in the mid-2000s. Full Review
