Critic Reviews for Kamp Katrina

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (7) | Fresh (8) | Rotten (2)

  • The film ultimately is too tedious and meandering to have the desired impact, with its subject matter more appropriate for a short newsmagazine segment than a feature length documentary.

    September 10, 2007
  • This verite digital video about coping with natural disaster contains exotic characters, tragic hardships, bureaucratic indifference, inner demons and the birth of a crack baby.

  • Ashley Sabin and David Redmon's gently observational videography and editing let the story emerge without any controlling structure or narration...

  • For a much more micro look at the storm's impact upon a small band of New Orleans eccentrics, there's David Redmon and Ashley Sabin's Kamp Katrina.

    August 30, 2007 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • A touching documentary by Ashley Sabin and David Redmon, introduces us to [residents] of the makeshift Kamp Katrina.

    August 24, 2007 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Stirring and lurid in equal measure, the film is compelling in its details but queasily detached: verit verging on exploitation.
