Critic Reviews for The Manzanar Fishing Club

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (5) | Fresh (3) | Rotten (3)

  • "The Manzanar Fishing Club'' has enough interesting footage for perhaps a 15-minute segment of a TV news magazine.

    September 14, 2012 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • All this is welcome; all this is too little. The Zen appeal of a river running through it is at best postcard-pretty, and not much deeper.

    September 13, 2012 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…
  • The historical road less traveled-shot in re-enactments that are obviously familiar with the terrain-is beguiling enough.

  • Ingeniously, and warmly, looks at a surprising chapter in the story of an internment camp in Eastern California.

    May 31, 2012 | Rating: 3.5/4
  • At its best, the film uses fishing as a window into the internment experience. At its worst, it uses the internment story as the backdrop for a documentary on trout fishing.

    May 3, 2012 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • Some of the stories of ingenuity - whether in creating fishing equipment out of scavenged materials or hiding their activities from authorities - are amusing or moving.
