Critic Reviews for Refusenik
One credits their naivete as the best tool to change history, as, because of it, they refused to cave in to excuse-making politicians and initial indifference in the Jewish-American community.
There are fascinating archival clips that show rare glimpses of early years of struggle behind the Iron Curtain, while the story eventually moves through such momentous footage as the Helsinki Accords and the fall of the Berlin Wall.
The result is a documentary that plays like a fat, satisfying work of nonfiction literature -- the final word because it seems to contain every word.
Packed with an extraordinary amount of archival material, the film offers a fascinating, if occasionally dense look at a grass-roots movement that became the world's chance to retroactively fight Hitler's Holocaust.
[An] absorbing portrait of the refusenik movement of the 1960s and '70s.
