While it's commendable that Cheadle and Clooney travel the world to promote awareness of the Darfur conflict, it doesn't necessarily make for a good 10 minutes of film.

Thoughtful, sobering, hopeful, despairing, inspirational, depressing, and just in time for the holidays comes Darfur Now, a documentary about genocide in the Sudan.

Informative and effortlessly gripping.

December 7, 2007 | Rating: 3/4

Slick, impassioned, and guardedly upbeat.

The title says Darfur Now -- not Darfur Then, not Darfur Sometime. But the question it asks emphatically is, Darfur Now What?

December 7, 2007 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

A disquieting, and somewhat disjointed, call to arms.

Audience Reviews for Darfur Now

Necessary but not great. The multiple perspectives really didn't work. An entire film just talking to the people of Darfur would have had more of an impact. The Hollywood stars made me want to nap.

DARFUR NOW engages us to understand and learn the crisis in sudan from different perspectives from a celebrity, a young college student, people inside the administration to people being held in this genocide. Although the event might seem hopeless at times, the documentary shows how the 6 people presented in the film are not letting their hands down and still keep on fighting against this massacre. It also incites us the viewers to do something about this crisis and to never lose faith. All in all, i strongly recommend this film because it is a genocide which is held right now as we speak in the 21st century . It is our mandate as civilians of the world to come together and act as one in order to stop this political non sense which engenders millions of Sudanese civillians.
