Powerful, poignant, important film & superbly directed
1 October 2018 | by viv-52619See all my reviews

This story is such a powerful, poignant and important film. Paul Conroy is an incredible storyteller, not least as he is reliving such trauma, but also his need to bear witness on behalf of Marie Colvin and the people of Syria. It's a burden, but I am so grateful he has taken on as his mission. This story must be heard. Chris Martin's directing is superb. The seamlessness with which he crafts archive with reconstruction makes you relive every moment as if you are there. You viscerally feel their pain and fear and the plight of these innocent civilians. The use of music is perfect ie. little, but to perfect effect. There is no need to ramp up the drama with cheap muzak and heavy drums as is the norm. The story is dramatic enough. It's a flawless film and powerful story. A must watch.
