Critic Reviews for The Syndrome

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (1)

This well-researched investigation is loaded with credible facts and has a workaday, broadcast-newsmagazine feel.

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

Apr 18, 2016 | Full Review…

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

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.
