Critic Reviews for The Ambassador

All Critics (37) | Top Critics (21) | Fresh (27) | Rotten (10)

  • Brgger seems very taken with his own cleverness-his too-cool-for-school attitude suggests that his ultimate aim is really to amuse himself.

  • At film's end, you'll probably feel like having a long, hot shower, metaphoric or otherwise, to wash away the mire Brgger has presented.

    January 11, 2013 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • [Brugger] returns with a jaw-dropping expos of postcolonial corruption; he's lucky he returned with his head.

  • You can imagine how this could have become a 1950s British comedy. It is all real.

    October 4, 2012 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • 'The Ambassador" is a sociopolitical prankumentary in which the prank blows up in the filmmaker's face, exploding-cigar style.
