Critic Reviews for King Leopold's Ghost
Although King Leopold's Ghost dwells perhaps too long on the viciousness, it does offer clues on how it became a circle.
An often infuriating (and excruciating) film to watch, but one that gets to the root of the despair that now plagues so much of the African continent.
King Leopold's Ghost can be recommended as an economical education in one of the lesser-known atrocities of the capitalist system, as well as an eye-opening account of history's most ruthless amasser of wealth.
In its hard-hitting depiction of a legacy of unspeakable brutality, this film shows that the ghosts of Leopold are alive and well.
The movie, directed by Pippa Scott and Oreet Rees, includes beautifully shot footage of the lush landscape, plus horrifying black and white footage and stills of the Congolese under the yoke of Leopold and his successors.
Europe's genocidal adventures in Africa receive a passionate reckoning in this ambitious documentary based on Adam Hochschild's best-selling history of the same title.
