The Network, though, makes a powerful case that, whatever its limitations, a free media, in the form of Sesame Street, cop dramas, travel shows, or women dancing without headscarves, is vital if Afghanistan is ever to know peace.
Feels a bit too cloistered and the subject perhaps too limited for feature-length attention.
Although at times resembling a promotional video, this documentary provides a vivid illustration of Afghanistan's changing social dynamics.
Though heavy with interviews that can be shallow, the movie provides an angle on a country remaking itself after Taliban rule.
[An] illuminating documentary about the founding and influence of Tolo TV, the first independent television station to operate in Afghanistan.
An uncritical, drama-free documentary that comes uncomfortably close to resembling a business-magazine puff piece.
Marginally insightful and incomplete while lacking in additional perspectives.
Non-reality TV finds a place in war-torn Afghanistan in this insightful slice of life of the fledgling broadcast industry.
Orner exhibits a deep and sincere passion for her surrogate subjects and what she clearly believes to be the balm of this unique 'edu-tainment,' a fact which helps offset a somewhat jumbled editorial vision.
Overall, The Network is uneven and unfocused, but not without merit.
A heartening but tempered portrait of the media's ability to effect social change.
Orner relies almost exclusively on interviews, and while not every story calls for bells and whistles, such a ho-hum approach doesn't do much for TOLO's inspiring work.
