Critic Reviews for For Sama

All Critics (14) | Top Critics (3)

  • For Sama captures the details of daily life under the Syria conflict better than any documentary I've yet seen.

  • Simple in concept and shattering in execution, blending hard-headed reportage with unguarded personal testimony, it's you-are-there cinema of the most literal order.

  • For Sama provides an intimate look at a young woman who fell in love in a place that was soon headed for complete destruction.

  • What separates For Sama from the plethora of documentaries about Syria is that it is a brilliant analysis of why people decide to stay in war zones, and thus could apply anywhere around the world.

    May 20, 2019 | Full Review…
  • For Sama has the staggering weight of a potent war epic, but without any of the artifice.

    May 20, 2019 | Full Review…
  • What results is a portrait of the revolution unlike any other, one that observes the worst in the situation, but also everyday moments of humanity that are often overlooked in portraits of conflict zones.
