  • Jim convinces us of its title subject's simple, resolute heroism.

    December 31, 2016 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • A deeply personal film that's often moving, Jim: The James Foley Story is a documentary that nonetheless falls short of greatness by virtue of the blind loyalty it demonstrates towards its subject.

  • There is grief and bafflement at the heart of this affecting documentary, reflecting on the life of journalist James Foley,

    September 1, 2016 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • A heartfelt, if slightly unreflective tribute to Foley, focusing on the strength he drew from his family and faith, although his private life and relationships are not touched on, and it does not provide an analytical context for Foley's work.

    September 1, 2016 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • An important reminder of why we need conflict journalists - and the dangers they face.

    September 1, 2016 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Jim: The James Foley Story is more than just a tribute to a fallen journalist. It's a deeply moving testament to a man who dared to face the worst of humanity and somehow managed to maintain his sense of empathy in spite of it all.
