Critic Reviews for Come Back, Africa

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (9) | Fresh (12) | Rotten (1)

  • "Come Back, Africa" is most effective as an ethnographic documentary, with cinema verite images of white privilege and black poverty.

    May 25, 2012 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • While the sights and the sounds aren't enough to constitute a great movie in and of themselves, they do result in a fascinating document.

    January 27, 2012 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • A solid, affecting artifact of the cruelty of late 1950s South Africa, in which music often makes despair and long-suppressed anger bearable.

    January 25, 2012 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Come Back, Africa is a work of amazing grace-and a forgotten treasure.

    January 24, 2012 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Rogosin was showing a vital culture on the brink, at the moment when it was calcifying into the form it would hold for more than three decades to come.

    January 24, 2012 | Full Review…
  • Come Back, Africa is a timely and remarkable piece of cinema journalism: a matter-of-fact, horrifying study of life in the black depths of South African society.
