The 100-minute film does a phenomenal job detangling the numerous scenarios that led to Syria's civil war and current bloodbath, dispelling the notion that this conflict is too complicated for those not versed on the Middle East to understand.
A mostly impressive array of experts ... adds to the merciless clarity of this tragic picture.
"Hell on Earth" portrays the Syrian citizens, who live in a morass of civil war, with an emotional directness we can't turn away from, to the point that it's no longer possible to think of those citizens as "them." They are us, or could be.
Hell on Earth is not an easy watch - it's infuriating and harrowing, and the footage is raw and visceral - but it should be compulsory viewing.
Everyone is above the law
The film argues that the people of the world are all connected. While there are certainly disasters when one nation involves itself in the civil war of another nation, there are also disasters which result from nations standing aside, doing nothing.
Filled with the horrors of a war that is so sickening and brutal that it's hard to watch without grimacing.
Junger and Quested organize the multisourced material in a straightforward chronology, tracing a complicated conflict with roots in the Arab Spring.
By far the best documentary on Syria to date. It deserves the widest audience given the urgent need for solidarity with a people who have been killed or displaced for demanding freedom.
Hell On Earth does more than enough to break it down for western audiences, employing a variety of video sources to reveal what it's like on the front line, unearthing footage from the everyday people forced to suffer a torrent of atrocities.
