Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: The movie is committed to revealing the world through Komona's eyes, and you never feel a taint of voyeurism or condescension. It stays true to her.
Fresh: A powerful and upsetting portrait of a young girl compelled into unimaginably horrific circumstances.
Fresh: The powerful things we expect from "War Witch" are as advertised, but what we don't expect is even better.
Fresh: War Witch gives us a continent's tragedy in a young girl's face.
this tv is so brav
I usually don't like movies about all the horrible things in Africa but this movie is so much more-about a young girl dealing with what life has given her. Amazing.
The cinematography was amazing!
