Reviews: Camp X-Ray (2014)

Reviews for this film from our members:

  • Jason Bailey @ Flavorwire
    • Excerpt: The baggage Stewart brings to ‘Camp X-Ray’ makes its first hour more compelling than anything in the screenplay. If the character is out of her depth, there‚Äôs a question as to whether the actor is as well; both certainly walk into Gitmo (the setting and the set) with something to prove, and when obstructions are placed in front of them, their jaw hardens and they proceed with even greater determination.
  • Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
    • Excerpt: Featuring a dynamic performance from Maadi and thoughtful one from Stewart, the claustrophobic drama only falters when it leans too heavily on obvious metaphors and screenwriting cliches in its final moments.
  • Kristen Lopez @ Cinema Sentries
    • Excerpt: Sattler deserves a medal for giving us Kristen Stewart’s finest performance to date, and Peyman Moaadi has a star-making turn here.
  • Ron Wilkinson @ Monsters and Critics
    • Excerpt: A lean and mean essay on human bondage, a minimalist examination of living life to the least.
