  • It achieves its mission of putting an intimate, human face on a seemingly overwhelming, faraway subject.

  • Hassan Fazili's documentary, Midnight Traveler, offers a necessary corrective to the widely held contention that refugees have nothing to offer to the countries where they land.

  • A bracingly intimate look at the trials of modern displacement...It's doing everything that it can.

  • What largely distinguishes "Midnight Traveler" is its anxious intimacy, a sense of uneasy closeness that pulls you into a family circle that at times gets very small, creating a sense of appropriate claustrophobia.

  • A documentary that feels like a modern-day message in a bottle, an urgent appeal for help from a family that's still searching for a home.
