All Critics (19) | Top Critics (9) | Fresh (18) | Rotten (1)

  • There's little that's not dispiriting about "Among the Believers" and its measured, direct entre into a closed world of hopeless boys and girls memorizing the Koran, but forbidden from learning its meanings.

  • While it is maddening to see the aversion to open-minded education by Mr. Aziz ("'Progressive thought' is dying," he declares, pleased), we also see the stark poverty that leaves others with few choices but to follow him.

Audience Reviews for Among the Believers

  • May 25, 2017
    Using a seemingly detached approach that doesn't preach to the audience and understands that what it shows speaks for itself, this is an important documentary that offers a devastating look at religious fundamentalism brainwashing kids and turning them into terrorists.
