Critic Reviews of "Welcome to Sarajevo"Time OutJanuary 26, 2006
A crisp, rigorously unsentimental director, Winterbottom was a good choice for this project.San Francisco ChronicleJune 18, 2002
A compelling but jumbled film that examines the line between journalistic detachment and passion.Chicago Sun-TimesJanuary 01, 2000
Too often we sense that the actors are drifting and the story is at sea.New York TimesJanuary 01, 2000
However closely they mirror the real experience of Mr. Nicholson and others, some of the shocks here are too sadly predictable.Salon.comJanuary 01, 2000
Messy and visceral, with an articulate, pointed anger that's recognizably British, "Welcome to Sarajevo" hits with an impact that's not diminished by the fact that Sarajevo's uneasy peace has held.USA TodayJanuary 01, 2000
Loosely structured, it keeps its focus despite lots of dramatic wiggle room.The Moving Picture ShowJuly 19, 2014
By turns darkly comical and passionately angryTheMovieReport.comDecember 23, 2006
A documentary would have more powerfully captured the horror of the Bosnian conflict than this synthetic, if well-acted and -intentioned, drama.New TimesJune 17, 2004
Good set-up; less pay-off than I'd hoped.Northwest Herald (Crystal Lake, IL)June 18, 2002
Winterbottom takes a recent history the rest of the world already was beginning to forget and throws it into a sharp, human focus.Boxoffice MagazineJune 05, 2002
It's an extraordinarily affecting, personal, and at times uplifting tale.Boston PhoenixMarch 24, 2002
A blistering docudrama, as refreshing as it is horrifying.
