Critic Reviews for Who Will Write Our History

All Critics (24) | Top Critics (10) | Fresh (22) | Rotten (2)

  • It's really quite striking. First of all, the actual content of the film is devastating... [And] it's not a documentary. I think we need a new term for what this is.

    September 18, 2019 | Full Review…
  • The film has problems, despite the inarguable worthiness of the material.

    March 6, 2019 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • I'm not a fan of reenactments in documentaries, especially when, as here, the real-life footage is so searing. But the staged sequences are tastefully done... This film is itself an important act of historical reclamation.

    February 15, 2019 | Rating: A- | Full Review…
  • Though its form is complex, including archival scenes that include concentration camp-type footage, the film's emotional through line is clear and direct.

    January 31, 2019 | Full Review…
  • A vital and sobering documentary...

    January 19, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Regardless of its missteps, Grossman's film should be seen as a necessary introduction to a multitude of stories warranting greater analysis.

    January 18, 2019 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
