He Named Me Malala spotlights a worthy subject, but without the focus her story deserves.

It's a shame that Guggenheim's slickly produced documentary examines such an important and fascinating story with such underwhelming results.
The easy intimacy of the family dynamic is the film's big revelation.
Guggenheim's film is inspiring.
The result is a film more educational than engrossing; high schoolers should see it - the rest of us, maybe not.
While Malala's saintly status is front and center, there are lingering, disquieting and incomplete issues all over the place.
The chief draw here, of course, is Malala herself: an irrepressible, earnest voice for the oppressed.
What shines through is her calmness and optimism as she continues along the long, slow path back to full recovery.
... the title and narrative makes it inadvertently about the man behind Malala, her father Ziauddin Yousafzai, that by the end of 87 minutes will leave you questioning just what is the real story behind the this almost mythical Malala.
He Named Me Malala is well-made, inspiring, and full of moments that will touch your heart in ways many documentaries of this nature won't.
The wonderful thing about He Named Me Malala, a documentary made by the American Davis Guggenheim, is how much it tells us that we didn't know.
What's in a name? As He Named Me Malala posits, maybe nothing, until the rose chooses to embody what it means to be a rose.
HE NAMED ME MALALA feels really impersonal (despite Guggenheim's attempts to eek out an engaging film), and it does her story a major disservice as it succumbs to the male perspective it tries--and fails--to denounce.
With such an interesting story and topic, a real life heroine, this documentary falls a little flat. It fails to tackle the real questions about what happened and focuses on the same information we already know. It is still thought provokimg and Malala is very brave and an inspiration but it could have been better.
