Critic Reviews for The Last Witness

All Critics (5)

  • A reminder of how England helped to suppress reports about Stalin's murder of 22,000 Poles in 1940 when it was politically expedient.

  • The Last Witness is similarly incapable of directly facing the slaughter, choosing instead to give glimpses of the trauma it left on the few survivors and only featuring, at most, five minutes of reenactments.

    May 31, 2018 | Rating: 6/10 | Full Review…
  • [Szkopiak's] familial connection to the tragedy should render it personal yet it never transcends [its lead's] narrative journey to project its inherent horror's raw emotions.

    May 30, 2018 | Rating: C | Full Review…
  • The underlying historical material for Szkopiak's film is fascinating, but the attempt to mold it into an old-fashioned cinematic thriller proves misguided.

    May 28, 2018 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…
  • As the movie proceeds, it shrugs off its televisual atmosphere and pacing, becoming a brooding and increasingly fatalistic noir in which Stephen's opportunities for disclosing what he knows diminish until there are none left.
