No one who sees Jung: In the Land of the Mujaheddin will be able to forget it, and few who see it will be sorry.

Valuable both as an historical document ... and for its unsparing and graphic depiction of the human toll of warfare and repression.

Jung is nothing if not timely, relevant and resonant in its heroic humanism in the face of the seemingly endless suffering of the people in this war-ravaged land.

Vendemmiati, Lazzaretti and Petitto ... attain an astounding access to Afghan places, people and sound.

Jung can hardly be called optimistic, but neither does it invite despair.

As history (1.5 million deaths so far in 20 years of nonstop war) and as news, it smokes CNN.
