"A compelling portrait of an extraordinarily complex personal odyssey, a film that explores both the power and the limitations of faith and forgiveness."
- Kenneth Turan, THE LOS ANGELES TIMES

"The more time filmmakers Daniele Anastasion and Eric Strauss spend with the former monster on his missions of mercy, the more complex such notions of postgenocide forgiveness and letting go of the past become."
- TIME OUT NEW YORK

"This amazing docu confronts the contradictions of reconciliation in a war-ravaged continent."
- Ronnie Schieb, VARIETY

"Staggeringly cinematic."
- David D'Arcy, SCREEN INTERNATIONAL

"An intriguing, bizarre, horrifying and thought-provoking doc -- Utterly fascinating with a charismatic central figure -- love him or loathe him - - who is made for the big screen ... this is an extremely unsettling film that holds you tightly in its grip for its almost too short running time."
-- Kirk Honeycutt, THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER

"Sometimes, a documentarian finds a subject so compelling that the best course of action is simply to turn on the camera and hang on for the ride... Blahyi is a charismatic speaker, and the film captures that perfectly -- as well as the way he has bared his soul in his effort to atone for years of murder."
- Sean Means, THE SALT LAKE TRIBUNE

"Blahyi's multiple reconciliations are inherently moving, capturing numerous complex layers of emotions that no actor could possibly convey."
- Eric Kohn, INDIEWIRE
