      Tim G Captivating, what a slice of history. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 12/04/22 Full Review Serge L Superb film which tells a slice of the history of Czechoslovakia recently invaded by Russia. Very credible recreation. Very long film to see as a mini-serie. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 05/15/20 Full Review Audience Member A long film that is riveting. Well acted, beautifully filmed, perfectly directed. The Prague Spring and it's grim aftermath explored on a very human scale. Ordinary people are twisted into despicable pawns of a distopic state.

      J. Hoberman ARTINFO.com The opening is sensational and, as if the narrative weren't compelling enough, [Agnieszka] Holland keeps trying to top it for the rest of the movie with a hectic, hyper dramatic camera style. Feb 25, 2019 Full Review Tom Keogh Seattle Times Enthralling ... Rated: 3.5/4 Jul 24, 2014 Full Review Scout Tafoya RogerEbert.com Holland never risks overlooking the hardship that comes with being on the right side of history. "Burning Bush" is a riposte to the idea that there's anything beautiful about dying for your beliefs. Rated: 4/4 Jun 13, 2014 Full Review Nicholas Bell IONCINEMA.com As powerfully enthralling as it is emotionally resonant, Burning Bush is Holland's most rewarding film in years. Rated: 4/5 Aug 30, 2019 Full Review Blake Williams Cinema Scope ... inert and has no sense of flow, and this despite the wavy dramatic effect caused by the three-part scrunching. Nov 18, 2017 Full Review Francine Prose The New York Review of Books Brilliant, ambitious, and moving. Mar 29, 2017 Full Review Read all reviews
