Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: In the end, "The Wrong Light" is an engrossing cautionary tale teaching one of philanthropy's oldest lessons: Caveat emptor.
Fresh: As a reminder that lies cannot live forever, the film sheds valuable light on the potentially damaging effects of grand-scale deception on the needy and vulnerable.
Fresh: Despite occasionally shaky storytelling, the doc sticks to its mission even as the most fundamental obstacles arise, producing a dramatic account that will make all do-gooders think twice about how they spend their charitable dollars.
Rotten: The divide between meaningful journalism and ethical filmmaking seldom seems as wide as it does in The Wrong Light.
