  • Critic Reviews of "Letters from Baghdad"

    Minneapolis Star Tribune
    June 22, 2017

    This lively production, scored to the rhythms of throbbing table drums, serving up her sharp, sly criticism of the misogynistic attitudes of her male counterparts, reaches too far, presenting her as a sort of proto-Wonder Woman. But not very much too far.

    San Francisco Chronicle
    June 14, 2017

    The result is something that feels fresh and modern.

    Los Angeles Times
    June 08, 2017

    In an age of a rebooted "Wonder Woman," Bell is the real thing, intrepid, fierce and smart.

    Washington Post
    June 08, 2017

    It provides a sturdy, often exhilarating bridge between the present and a past that not only isn't distant, but isn't even really past.

    June 03, 2017

    A carefully researched documentary that uses an extraordinary wealth of appealing archival footage accompanied by Tilda Swinton's voiceover as Bell.

    June 02, 2017

    But although Bell herself is fascinating, Letters From Baghdad is less so.

    June 21, 2017

    It's a portrait of a complex woman that respects her achievements but ultimately adores her courage.

    San Francisco Examiner
    June 16, 2017

    While Bell deserves a more comprehensive portrait, this documentary brings her into vivid focus and captures the world she inhabited.

    An exquisite documentary on the extraordinary life and work of Gertrude Bell.

    The Young Folks
    June 01, 2017

    But despite its shortcomings, Letters from Baghdad is one of the rare documentaries which is in itself an aesthetic achievement.

    Film Journal International
    June 01, 2017

    A fascinating documentary about Gertrude Bell, frequently dubbed "the female Lawrence of Arabia," that could have been even better with more exposition and historical context.

    Daily Express (UK)
    April 23, 2017

    Her story is told mostly via her letters, read by Tilda Swinton, and it contains astute warnings for the future. But frustratingly there are no contributions from historians or biographers to provide context and analysis.
