A documentary would have more powerfully captured the horror of the Bosnian conflict than this synthetic, if well-acted and -intentioned, drama.

A crisp, rigorously unsentimental director, Winterbottom was a good choice for this project.

Winterbottom takes a recent history the rest of the world already was beginning to forget and throws it into a sharp, human focus.

A compelling but jumbled film that examines the line between journalistic detachment and passion.

It's an extraordinarily affecting, personal, and at times uplifting tale.

A blistering docudrama, as refreshing as it is horrifying.

Too often we sense that the actors are drifting and the story is at sea.

However closely they mirror the real experience of Mr. Nicholson and others, some of the shocks here are too sadly predictable.

Messy and visceral, with an articulate, pointed anger that's recognizably British, "Welcome to Sarajevo" hits with an impact that's not diminished by the fact that Sarajevo's uneasy peace has held.

This film offers an honest portrait of the media in action, as it also depicts a public that is more interested in being entertained than being informed.

Brings up some hard questions about the sheer impossibility of foreign corespondents remaining true to their journalistic neutrality in a war zone.

Christian Science Monitor

All its dramatized elements, from its scripted dialogue to Harrelson's role as the naysaying cynic, can be seen as devices needed to bring a harrowing but humane story to a popular audience without watering down the very real horrors of a very real war.

Welcome to Sarajevo isn't just the story of an outsider's perspective of the conflict; it's a compelling examination of the role the media played in reporting and shaping the average person's views of the war.
