  • Frederic & Mary Ann Brussat @ Spirituality & Practice
    • Excerpt: The life and work of an award-winning female war correspondent whose zeal for the truth made her into a fearless person.
  • MaryAnn Johanson @ FlickFilosopher.com
    • Excerpt: A moving and important portrait of legendary Times of London foreign correspondent Marie Colvin. We need more movies like this, about fearless, badass women this outrageously good at their vitally necessary work.
  • Jared Mobarak @ The Film Stage
    • Excerpt: Heineman progresses through the years with purpose as far as showing Colvin’s relationship with war above all else. Rather than straight biography, A Private War proves an emotionally poetic representation of identity.
  • Frank Ochieng @ Screen Anarchy
    • Excerpt: Resoundingly received with dramatic urgency–hauntingly involving in its depiction of the scarred psyches of journalists. Pike gives a powerful and revealing performance as the late Colvin that embraced her high-risk occupation with abrasive enthusiasm
  • [New] | Amir Siregar @ Amir at the Movies [Indonesian]
    • Excerpt: With a husky voice, a jagged swagger, and a gruff charisma, the incredible Rosamund Pike paints Marie Colvin as an uncompromising warrior in her own right – often elevating the script and overcoming the movie’s clumsy pacing.
