Top Critic

A smartly dispassionate and skeptical look at 'shaken baby syndrome,' and an accidental portrait about how science fails us when it solidifies into dogma.

Flick Filosopher

This thought-provoking documentary presents a compelling case that "shaken baby syndrome" doesn't exist.

Film Journal International

It's pretty clear that the film's arguments against Shaken Baby Syndrome are highly questionable. Once you start peeling back the layers, they begin to unravel.
