Benedict Cumberbatch is very good in this, but it really took a nose dive after about 40 minutes or so. Olivia Colman's narration is nice, the score is lovely, but it just didn't hold my interest.
This film upset me. The content of course is upsetting. Starving and dying children is heartbreaking, but this doc seems like it would rather just gawk at the children's (and their family's) pain rather than provide more context to the situation. It does nothing to paint a picture so to speak on the crisis in Yemen. Why are they at war? Why are all these children developing gluten allergies? Why does aid have trouble getting in? They don't even tell us anything about the medical professionals we follow aside from their names. They did the bare minimum.
