All Critics (7) | Top Critics (3)

Over the course of its simple, unadorned 82 minutes, Mahamat-Saleh Haroun's Hissein Habré: A Chadian Tragedy wrecks you in ways you might not have known were possible.

September 19, 2017 | Full Review…

It's more of a document than a documentary; calling it cinema seems like an error of categorization.

[An] intimate, experiential, and impassioned documentary.

Watching this film is not easy, nor should it be.

February 14, 2019 | Full Review…

It is to Haroun's credit that he lets this statement stand alone, without any editorial embellishments. For the attentive viewer, there's no need for the director to connect the dots and invoke historical precedents.
