Critic Reviews for Welcome to Chechnya
Welcome to Chechnya: The Gay Purge. brought home the horror with a dramatic urgency. David France's grimly compelling film was a docu-thriller, with heart-stopping moments as activists spirited people out of the country in clandestine operations.
France sensitively draws out the personalities of his subjects, ensuring that, despite the digital disguises and pseudonyms, they emerge as distinct individuals.
David France has made a difficult, distressing and often tremendously bleak film about the torture and murder of LGBT people in Chechnya, and the brave efforts of community activists and organisers to "extract" them from the region.
It's one of those documentaries that makes you wonder how it even got made... It's a little bit all over the place, but ultimately I found this to be a harrowing, fascinating watch.
It's a collective profile in courage ... on the people who are the last thing standing between survival and a purge.
