Movie Reviews

Slant Magazine - 10/10 by Ed Gonzalez Edet Belzberg's heart-breaking documentary transcends exploit by subtly indicting the homeless plight of Romanian youth on Ceausescu's ignorant legacy.
Greg's Previews at Yahoo! Movies - 10/10 by Greg Dean Schmitz If you have a stomach for harrowing, depressing true tales of man's inhumanity to man, Children Underground is a fantastic document of a nation's priorities gone wild.
New York Magazine (Vulture) - 9/10 by Peter Rainer Belzberg doesn't intervene during the moments of violence, believing that the film can force social change only by showing the worst. If she is correct, then this film should move mountains.
Variety - 9/10 by Robert Koehler Belzberg's unsparing camera sometimes portrays a level of cruelty that tests viewers' tolerance, but her fearless aesthetic is also a measure of the film's brilliant indictment of any society that can allow its most vulnerable to slip into oblivion.
New York Daily News - 9/10 by Elizabeth Weitzman First-time filmmaker Edet Belzberg may be the first person to assign any value to the lives of the homeless Romanian youngsters featured in her harrowing documentary.
Village Voice - 9/10 by Ed Park A horror story, told with Dickensian compassion, permeating outrage, and little hope.
New York Magazine/Vulture - 8/10 by Peter Rainer Almost unbearably sad.
New York Post - 8/10 by Lou Lumenick A powerful piece of filmmaking.
Newsday - 8/10 by Jan Stuart A heartrending act of courage in the guise of a documentary film.
The New York Times - 8/10 by Stephen Holden A singularly depressing film. In the face of such unrelieved, grinding poverty, hope fades.
Film Threat - 6/10 by Ron Wells I think the most important aspect here is that this subject is at least being addressed.
Filmcritic.com - 4/10 by Christopher Null
