Slant Magazine
Documents emotionally charged interactions between patients and hospital staff without any signs that the subjects are being made to feel self-conscious or that they're behavior is being affected. Full Review
Andrew O'Hehir
The Waiting Room is a source of both inspiration and hope. The system may be broken, but the people are not. Full Review
John DeFore
The Hollywood Reporter
Inherently unpreachy but making its point more effectively than many participants in the debate can, the film should find vocal advocates in a niche theatrical run. Full Review
Keith Uhlich
Time Out New York
The documentary's scope feels a bit small overall - more concerned with capturing the episodic adventures of these disparate subjects than with connecting their experiences to larger societal ills. Full Review
Mick LaSalle
San Francisco Chronicle
This is human drama at its most intense and universal. This is the rare film that can change the way you think and see the world. Full Review
