  • Innovative doc filmmaking. Impressive visuals. A very personal and harrowing story laid bare.

    February 10, 2021 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Flee won the World Cinema Documentary Grand Jury Prize at Sundance, and no wonder: It's heartbreaking and moving, and hard to forget.

  • Rasmussen uses two very different styles of animation to illuminate the unthinkably hard years the narrator endured, and the emotional pain he's just beginning to process as he speaks about a background he's hidden from almost everyone

    February 9, 2021 | Full Review…
  • A feat of humanistic filmmaking, this is a movie we will be celebrating all through next year's awards season and talking about long after.

    February 9, 2021 | Full Review…
  • With great resourcefulness, Rasmussen puts you through it in a way that illustrates, instructs, makes you look inward and ask whether you'd have what it takes, if you could tough it out and survive in a cold, hostile world.
