Mark Kermode Observer (UK) This is both a tribute to the brave resilience of parents and children and a paean to a past age of honest, old-school investigative journalism. Rated: 4/5 Jan 24, 2016 Full Review Geoffrey Macnab Independent (UK) It's an inspiring story, very well told by the directors of McCullin. Rated: 4/5 Jan 22, 2016 Full Review Peter Bradshaw Guardian There is just one thing missing from this excellent documentary: an analysis of the psychological taboo factor - a factor that Distillers used to its advantage. Rated: 4/5 Jan 21, 2016 Full Review Matthew Anderson CineVue It is a documentary that will enthrall, enlighten, enrage and distress. Crafted with precision and consideration for its subject matter and filled with a dense web of information, it is a well deserved and fitting testament to pioneering journalism. Rated: 4/5 Apr 8, 2019 Full Review Naila Scargill Trebuchet It is rare that a documentary achieve a level of so rousing that one could almost apply the genre of thriller, yet Attacking the Devil manages it. Feb 28, 2019 Full Review Kevin Harley Total Film The Morrises clear-sighted thrust upholds the power, punch and potential of an honourable, determined press. Rated: 4/5 Jan 2, 2017 Full Review Read all reviews

Audience Member A bit misleading to attribute this too much to the Nazis but we have a compelling story nonetheless about drug victims seeks compensation from a negligent drug company. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/07/23 Full Review Audience Member Interesting story about 60 year wait for justice and the power of journalism Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member What started out as an interesting documentary about the horrors of thalidomide, turned into a documentary about the person who broke the story's career. While interesting, I felt like the film lacked focus and fell apart about halfway through. It was well shot and the production values were obviously high.
