Critic Reviews for September Tapes
Eventually collapses under the weight of its no-budget arrogance, but it goes some interesting places beforehand.
Johnston's rough-hewn handheld footage generates a sense of dread as a defining force behind the camera, more concrete than any onscreen images.
Afghanistan shouldn't be used as a backdrop for some director's selfish attempt at provocation.
The film itself still feels faked, and its calculated exploitation of some real tragedies may be the most unbelievable thing of all.
The whole notion of exploiting a war and its victims to shoot a commercial feature is reprehensible.
Audience Reviews for September Tapes
An interesting idea, but it is delivered in that fake documentary, shakey, hand-held video camera style. Good footage of the Afghanistan/Pakistan countryside, and some pretty good combat scenes...but the entire reason that he was supposed to be there was lost to me. Had he lost his mind? All he really accomplished was to be the cause of more senseless killings. I have to say, though, that I was left with a sickened feeling after watching this..even knowing all along that it wasn't real.
