Slant Magazine
Bothing is pointedly outlandish in Mads Brügger's latest, a fact that represents its triumphs and burdens. Full Review
A.O. Scott
The New York Times
Mr. Brugger's portrait of shameless, routine collusion between exploitative foreigners and dysfunctional dictatorships is depressing and undeniable. Unless, that is, The Ambassador is even more of a hoax than it seems to be. This strikes me as plausible, since somebody having this much fun in such proximity to horror may not be completely trustworthy. Full Review

Time Out New York
Within the first ten minutes, the movie proves the point that exploitation in Africa is rampant, but never goes any deeper than that; it's an undercover endeavor that never feels as if much is actually being uncovered. Full Review
Elizabeth Weitzman
New York Daily News
His outlandish story feels only half-told - though still twice as fascinating as most. Full Review
Eric Kohn
The closest Brügger comes to explaining his style is an early statement on the duality of his mission to go "beyond all moral boundaries known to man while still being a respectable member of society." It's a goal enacted less with a coy wink than with a violent elbow jab to the ribs. Full Review
