[A] highly personal, quirky, thoughtful and cohesive consideration of Poland's anguish.

This is a documentary about Godmilow's attempts to make a documentary about the Solidarity movement -- and if that sounds tortuous, wait until you see the movie.

Top Critic

Made up of fragments of dreams, autobiography, documentary footage and re- enacted interviews in New York, this personal collage-movie doesn't add up to very much.

Top Critic

An insightful look at the situation in Poland, Far from Poland is not only highly informative (an expectation of any documentary) but manages to stretch the boundaries of fiction and documentary dramatically.
