Critic Reviews for Ghosts of Cité Soleil
Ghosts of Cite Soleil is too brief and limited in scope to provide a complete picture of Haiti's turbulent history, but its images of how so many of its citizens live and die on a daily basis -- is both heartbreaking and unforgettable.
Leth's gritty, haphazardly edited film plays like a music video, with jagged rap sequences interlaced with urgent handheld Super 8-style footage and a stonking shanty-blues soundtrack.
An expressionistic portrait of a society in violent chaos, the film blends cinÃ (C)ma vÃ (C)ritÃ (C) and newsreel footage to capture a modern-day tragedy with Shakespearean overtones.
[An] indelible documentary, which dives into the brutal heart of a place most people would avoid at all cost.
Audience Reviews for Ghosts of Cité Soleil
Its funny how you can have all the power & somebody can come in out of nowhere & just take it from you
Extraordinary access to the documentary subjects allows a frightening world to come to life.
An eye-opening, somewhat depressing documentary that for the most part succeeds in drawing the viewer into the world of the Haitian slums. The two gangleaders are incredibly compelling characters, and their love triangle with a UN aid worker is subtle, yet affecting. There are no easy answers regarding the situation in Haiti, but Ghosts goes a long way towards at least attempting to explain the factors that lead to such societal violence.
