Critic Reviews for Darfur Now
Thoughtful, sobering, hopeful, despairing, inspirational, depressing, and just in time for the holidays comes Darfur Now, a documentary about genocide in the Sudan.
Informative and effortlessly gripping.
The title says Darfur Now -- not Darfur Then, not Darfur Sometime. But the question it asks emphatically is, Darfur Now What?
The depressing subtext is that even with detailed proof of ongoing genocide, it takes movie stars to get to the movers and shakers, and to get worthy movies like this one into theaters.
Audience Reviews for Darfur Now
A great film about how everyone can help end the genocide in Darfur. It tugs at your conscience of empowers everyone to know that doing something is better than doing nothing. Divest for Darfur!
oil, fuel for the future is and will be OIL! we can debate this another time but the simple facts are the world is CUT up in to national military interest strictly because of oil. The most powerful nation on earth MAIN PRIORITY in social, military interest is about the securing resource such as oil and water for its people. this so call darfur movie is a otherwise propaganda film to gain american/eurocentic sympathy. it is in our interest to establish power with the new government in darfur because there are so much oil in sudan! sad facts tare these mass murder are a form of genocide, but other dictators in the pockets of european union and united state such as democratic republic of congo have know to mass murder up to three million of its own people. all the while we just quietly work out deals with their leaders. countries like Oil and Gas rich Nigeria, Oil and Gas rich Equatorial Guinea all committed atrocity against its poeple that american oil company have contracts with. is the end justify the means of the propaganda movie? should we send american troop to help? money? food? will this stop any dictator that kill it own people? it hasn't work for the mass murders that american bought!
Necessary but not great. The multiple perspectives really didn't work. An entire film just talking to the people of Darfur would have had more of an impact. The Hollywood stars made me want to nap.
