Critic Reviews for Unclaimed
One can't help but think that in the hands of a shrewder filmmaker like Errol Morris, this stranger-than-fiction account would have been absolutely riveting.
The film's many dangling threads... are obscured by a crescendo of sentiment that's hard to resist.
A nakedly manipulative film, intercutting missionary Faunce's history with shots of a ludicrously glum and silent family dinner, and indulging in some treacly sad-face piano music.
A documentary that sends its audience on a rollercoaster ride of emotions.
Audience Reviews for Unclaimed
5/28/15 One more reason documentaries can be better than main stream movies. Is he really a MIA or not? Is the government hiding any info because of super secret MACV-SOG operations? Is John who he claims to be and do the people who recognize him like his sister and fellow soldier make the argument that he is. Lots of compelling images to support this man is truly John Henry Roberstson but still no proven DNA. This story doesn't seem to be finished.
Heartbreaking story about one POW/MIA and the shockingly, fraudulent behavior of US governmental officials who refuse to help this poor soldier who gave his life for his country or even acknowledge his existence. This man is only one of 80 or 85 thousand POW /MIA's. Hopefully this will shake up the status quo.
