Chronicles the slaughter in Darfur. Exploitative play on the horror of naked aggression. The lesson of the vast history of such injustice is that weakness invites aggression, so be strong or perish. Nations that can organize into productive strength with military might survive. Other nations and groups that remain weak are trampled.

Ultimately, Devil ponders the optimism/pessimism = apathy/x equation as honestly and studiously as any doc I've ever seen. Full Review

This shouldn't be a competitive sport or anything, but I'm pretty sure that Annie Sundberg and Ricki Stern's documentary The Devil Came on Horseback has the most horrifying images I have ever seen in a motion picture. Full Review

An unnervingly powerful picture of atrocity. Full Review

Brutal, urgent, devastating -- the documentary The Devil Came on Horseback demands to be seen as soon as possible and by as many viewers as possible. Full Review

Austin Chronicle
The film's approach suits an audience broader than the usual documentary crowd, though it's worth mentioning that those pictures can really stay with you. Full Review
