Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Proving not for the first time that the worst of times can bring out the best is one of the things this strong documentary is all about.
Fresh: Marathon: The Patriots Day Bombing has many rewards, disjointed though they may be.
Fresh: It focuses, rightly so, on the survivors, still courageously trying to overcome their wounds - and on those who didn't survive, to whom the film is dedicated.
Fresh: Ricki Stern and Annie Sundberg's moving HBO documentary Marathon: The Patriots Day Bombing, produced with help from the Boston Globe, can be viewed as a thoughtful study of the lessons of magnitude.
This movie uses footage from the scene, it is a little graphic in parts, but they are the real photos! This movie focuses more on the victims and their recovery, than the police and the bombers. Very well done!
