Critic Reviews for Passing Poston

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (3) | Fresh (5) | Rotten (3)

  • While Poston bears witness to a historical disgrace, it also resonates with more current conflicts.

    August 8, 2008 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Stifled by directors Joe Fox and James Nubile's frankly incompetent approach to both documentary storytelling and aesthetics.

    August 8, 2008 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…
  • An especially shameful chapter in U.S. history -- the internment of innocent Japanese Americans during World War II -- is sensitively examined in the overly brief but worthy documentary Passing Poston.

    July 11, 2008 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • In the moving documentary Passing Poston, 'hell' is the word most consistently used by surviving Japanese Americans forcibly interned during World War II.

    June 20, 2008 | Rating: 3.5/4
  • Leaning too heavily on archived newsreels, the film tries to establish a feeling that the propaganda mechanism justified the government's deplorable actions.

    August 8, 2008 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Who would think that full-fledged American citizens, born in the United States, could have lost their liberty, homes and businesses, never to recover financially or emotionally?
