Critic Reviews for Night Will Fall

All Critics (22) | Top Critics (5)

It may not do full justice to all [of its] subjects in its tight 78 minutes, but it's not a film you're likely to forget.

The liberation footage itself is the centerpiece of Night Will Fall. It is mesmerizing, sickening, disturbing, and essential.

Horrifying. Fascinating.

A masterfully constructed, eye-opening and, at times, eyes-averting look at an obscure chapter of Holocaust history.

Nov 20, 2014 | Full Review…

This wise, sober new documentary is a reminder of historical horrors, but it's also a tale of censorship.

... Alfred Hitchcock himself was drafted to shape the footage into a documentary that would play for audiences on both sides of the war. It was never completed.

Audience Reviews for Night Will Fall

A powerful film that should be seen together with the unmissable restored documentary whose untold story is chronicled here. Needless to say, it brought out many tears and heartbreaking testimonies from people in the theater where I was at the 64th Berlin International Film Festival.
