Critic Reviews for The Network

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (7) | Fresh (8) | Rotten (4)

  • 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.

    October 4, 2013 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • Although at times resembling a promotional video, this documentary provides a vivid illustration of Afghanistan's changing social dynamics.

    September 30, 2013 | Full Review…
  • Though heavy with interviews that can be shallow, the movie provides an angle on a country remaking itself after Taliban rule.

    September 26, 2013 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • [An] illuminating documentary about the founding and influence of Tolo TV, the first independent television station to operate in Afghanistan.

    Top Critic
  • An uncritical, drama-free documentary that comes uncomfortably close to resembling a business-magazine puff piece.
