Critic Reviews for Ghostland: The View of the Ju'Hoansi

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (2)

An intermittently entertaining but ultimately facile ethnographic portrait.

December 17, 2016 | Full Review…

This is an engaging movie depicting some sympathetic people, and is ultimately worthwhile.

December 13, 2016 | Full Review…

Mildly engaging, but not nearly as powerful or illuminating as Lost Boys of Sudan.

December 22, 2016 | Rating: 5.75/10 | Full Review…

Documentary about the "Bushmen" of Namibia gets up close and personal but never connects to its subject.

December 13, 2016 | Full Review…

The film's nagging representational problem stems from its reductive sense of place and portraiture of emotional displacement, which gradually phases out the possibility of thornier revelations.

December 11, 2016 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

The many interactions that follow, whether accidental or planned, offer an unusually positive window on the adaptability of human beings, and what we still have to learn from each other, despite our best efforts not to.
