      Noel Murray Los Angeles Times “Onoda” is an insightful portrait of fanaticism, illustrating how bad ideas can take root simply because people are naturally resistant to change. Dec 16, 2022 Full Review Teo Bugbee New York Times Harari chooses to create a psychological portrait of his central character, using images rather than explanations of ideology to tap into Onoda’s mind-set. Oct 6, 2022 Full Review Edward Porter Times (UK) ... An oddly compelling tale, sometimes poignant and occasionally comic. Rated: 3/5 Aug 24, 2022 Full Review Panos Kotzathanasis Asian Movie Pulse A great film, a true epic that shows the consequences of war in the most eloquent fashion through a truly impactful and quite dramatic story. Rated: 7.5 Dec 26, 2022 Full Review Lee Jutton Film Inquiry Onoda: 10,000 Nights in the Jungle is a hallucinatory look at the horror of war that revels in the absurdity as well as the tragedy of Onoda’s thirty-year refusal to face reality. Dec 17, 2022 Full Review Hope Madden MaddWolf Onoda becomes not just an anomaly, an oddity, but an image of a generation lost and a promise forgotten.
