Critic Reviews for The Return to Homs

All Critics (15) | Top Critics (10) | Fresh (14) | Rotten (1)

  • Return to Homs is a shocking, visceral documentary made among young Syrian fighters under siege from President Assad's snipers in the devastated city of Homs.

    July 7, 2014 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Admittedly, there are a lot of documentaries like this, made by citizen journalists recording uprisings in their homelands, but this is one of the best of the recent crop, and a timely reminder of a conflict that's slipped out of the headlines of late.

    June 26, 2014 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Captures with great immediacy the gallows that is war and the humour that is human.

    June 26, 2014 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Missionary-position moviemaking, energised into moments of true or seeming passion by the throes of the strife-torn Shakicam.

    June 26, 2014 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • The film makes you an eyewitness to the chaos of war. There's not much context here, which can be confusing. But still, it's gripping.

    June 24, 2014 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • A ferocious, devastating doc and a must-see for anyone seeking an insider's view of the Syrian uprising.

    June 23, 2014 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
