'Human Flow does not pretend to reinvent the form and other documentaries are more artfully constructed, yet in its urgent mission not just to shock us into action but to humanise those affected, it is entirely successful.’ ★★★★★ Raphael Abraham, Financial Times

’This is angry, thoughtful, straightforward activist journalism: blunt, simple and impossible to ignore.’ ★★★★ Dave Calhoun, Time Out
