Critic Reviews for Lost Boys of Sudan
Shot on video, and with the look of a PBS entry, it nevertheless manages to function on several levels -- all of them complex and sophisticated.
Culture shock is hopelessly inadequate to describe the experience of the young subjects of the riveting documentary Lost Boys of Sudan.
Offers an opportunity to see a good movie and learn something about an issue that has received far too little attention in the U.S. press.
It might help you understand an unfamiliar face walking toward you on the street, and that's a great accomplishment for any film.
A documentary about two refugees who come to the United States, it offers a detailed look at the hurdles they face but makes no attempt to analyze, explain or advocate changes that would help them.
Lacking that exotic 'foreign' focus and by failing to address the hardships of their early lives, we're left with a routine film about teenagers making mistakes or growing up too fast.
Audience Reviews for Lost Boys of Sudan
Doc film about Sudanese refugees in America orphaned by war atrocities and their experience in the US.
So similar to God Grew Tired of Us (even had a few EXACTLY identical clips), it was difficult to watch. But I respect the Lost Boys'...their struggles, their past, having to change so much when coming to America...they are such a brave, strong people :)
Technically, this documentary is about as basic as you can get. It is, however, a fairly good firsthand account of the acclimation of hopeful Sudanese refugees to American life, and their eventual realization of the fact that there is no "Heaven on Earth".
