Rolling Stone - Peter Travers
The film belongs to Jolie. She won an Oscar for 1999's "Girl, Interrupted," but this is by far her best performance.

The Hollywood Reporter - Ray Bennett
Expertly fashioned documentary-style drama.
80
L.A. Weekly - Ella Taylor
Michael Winterbottom has made an enormously moving document of the tense days between Pearl's capture and the news that he was dead.

New York Magazine (Vulture) - David Edelstein
The movie is clipped, blunt, and grimly realistic. It is practically a POLICIER , although the suspense is mitigated by our knowledge that the investigation will end badly.
70
Newsweek - David Ansen
Like many of Winterbottom's movies, it falls a step short of its full potential. Its tact is both its strength and its weakness. The climax feels rushed: it's the rare movie these days that feels too short.
