“[It] digs deeper through the morass of power, corruption and lies. You keep waiting for someone to say, ‘Forget it, Jake, it’s Bucharest.”

David Fear – Rolling Stone

“For all the horror, Nanau is an exhilarating film-maker, trusting us to keep pace without talking heads.”

Danny Leigh – Financial Times
[Full review]

“It is so disturbing, but also very rewarding in the sense of how journalism ought to function.”

Claudia Puig – FilmWeek (KPCC - NPR Los Angeles)
[Full review]
