Variety
Timely and thought-provoking, if a bit rambling.

The constant flow of background images can be distracting, but this is nonetheless a fascinating film that offers an unexpected and valuable perspective on the on-going Arab-Israeli conflict.

Village Voice
Grainy video and gimmicky editing give this documentary an amateurish feel, but Samir's charming, rueful interlocutors shine through.

New York Daily News
Feels a little too much like a film-school project, but it does offer an informative look at a timely issue.

Despite some fancy editing, Forget Baghdad is forgettable.

Washington Post
Goes beyond interesting, though, to moderately annoying.
