“It’s mourning again in America, and it’s mesmerizingly, horribly gripping.” – Manohla Dargis, New York Times

“…takes what many whisper about in these divisive, polarizing times and turns it into a smartly crafted, suspenseful, propulsive thriller that manages to make a statement without tipping Garland’s political hand too much” – Cary Darling, Houston Chronicle

“It’s one of the best movies of the year. And among journalists, at least, it should be one of the most-talked about.” – Bill Goodykoontz, Arizona Republic
