TV Guide Magazine - Ken Fox
Extremely difficult but worthy film.
USA Today - Mike Clark
Grimly claustrophobic movies can make viewers put up a shield, yet Tim Blake Nelson (who directed O) invests this unusual Holocaust drama with dramatic intensity that in no way cheapens its subject matter.
The Globe and Mail (Toronto) - Liam Lacey
When the larger question cannot be answered, the lesser one -- "What would you have done?" -- seems beside the point.
Washington Post - Ann Hornaday
Jagged, unrelenting, claustrophobically intimate.
Austin Chronicle - Marjorie Baumgarten
The movie's storyline is not always perfectly clear, seemingly falling into the same murky “grey zone” as everything else.

The Grey Zone (2001)

A Nazi doctor, along with the Sonderkomando Jews – who are forced to work in the crematoria of Auschwitz against their fellow-Jews – find themselves in a moral grey zone.
