Ron Wilkinson
Monsters and Critics

Non-reality TV finds a place in war-torn Afghanistan in this insightful slice of life of the fledgling broadcast industry.

Orner exhibits a deep and sincere passion for her surrogate subjects and what she clearly believes to be the balm of this unique 'edu-tainment,' a fact which helps offset a somewhat jumbled editorial vision.

The Network, though, makes a powerful case that, whatever its limitations, a free media, in the form of Sesame Street, cop dramas, travel shows, or women dancing without headscarves, is vital if Afghanistan is ever to know peace.

Overall, The Network is uneven and unfocused, but not without merit.

Although at times resembling a promotional video, this documentary provides a vivid illustration of Afghanistan's changing social dynamics.

A heartening but tempered portrait of the media's ability to effect social change.

Though heavy with interviews that can be shallow, the movie provides an angle on a country remaking itself after Taliban rule.

[An] illuminating documentary about the founding and influence of Tolo TV, the first independent television station to operate in Afghanistan.

Marginally insightful and incomplete while lacking in additional perspectives.

Feels a bit too cloistered and the subject perhaps too limited for feature-length attention.

An uncritical, drama-free documentary that comes uncomfortably close to resembling a business-magazine puff piece.

Top Critic IconTop Critic

Orner relies almost exclusively on interviews, and while not every story calls for bells and whistles, such a ho-hum approach doesn't do much for TOLO's inspiring work.
