The film ... places Ferencz on a high pedestal, complete with rapturous commentary on his influence and impact from colleagues and family, but the man has undeniably earned it.
Ferencz's deeply hopeful message of peace shines through as brightly as his spirit.
Ferencz... comes across as thoughtful, principled and engaging in a film that, in keeping with his demeanor, is a modest profile rather than a sprawling portrait.
His energy never seems to flag, in a film that pays full tribute to him - while also sounding the alarm that his work is more urgent than ever.
Though humble in terms of production, the straightforward doc contains enough dramatic anecdotes (and, we're required to add, sufficient relevance to current events) that it merits screening outside educational settings.
What we have with Barry Avrich's inspiring and eloquent documentary Prosecuting Evil: The Extraordinary World of Ben Ferencz is the American Dream meeting mankind's nightmare.
Sharp... tells amazing tales in this absorbing, low-budget documentary.
Ferencz's story has all the gravitas of a tragic history play...
Prosecuting Evil gets almost all of its details straight from the mouth of its titular legal icon; a man so well spoken and passionate about what he does that not much else is needed to convey the importance and nuance of his tireless work.
Avrich basically points the camera and listens to a hero from an era when we still had heroes. Hanging over the entire film, but barely addressed, is that these aren't the best days to be asking the best of humanity.
The talking heads are a gathered chorus singing Ferencz's praises. What's clear in Prosecuting Evil is that Ferencz is far more convincing when speaking for himself, and for those who didn't survive.
Prosecuting Evil is a beautiful and poignant documentary about one of the most important living figures from WWII.
