Critic Reviews for Life Overtakes Me

All Critics (4) | Fresh (4)

  • There are a lot of unanswered questions. Wisely, the film doesn't attempt to answer them, simply setting out the facts as they are understood and inviting empathy.

  • Life Overtakes Me is definitely a tough watch. But it's worthwhile to put it on just to be aware of the extreme stress refugee families - especially their children - go through in other parts of the world.

  • Life Overtakes Me does indeed overtake us, reminding us of the perils refugees face, even when the guns cease to fire and the violence ends.

    June 15, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Life Overtakes Me calls attention to an awful and easily preventable situation with calm and grace. It's hard to ask much more of a documentary.
