      Stephen Farber Hollywood Reporter Stirring tale of children rescued from modern-day slavery. Apr 24, 2018 Full Review David Ehrlich indieWire Saving defenseless kids from the cruelty of Lake Volta must be some of the most challenging work imaginable, but The Rescue List ultimately resonates because of how little it can take to show them their own strength. Rated: B- Apr 12, 2018 Full Review Dennis Harvey Variety Focusing on a rescue-and-rehabilitation organization and several youths it plucks from servitude, this is an involving indictment with enough individual human-interest elements to avoid being too much of a grim screed. Apr 10, 2018 Full Review Richard Propes TheIndependentCritic.com What is perhaps most jarring about The Rescue List is with how much normalcy it all unfolds. Rated: 3.5/4.0 Aug 30, 2020 Full Review Carla Hay Culture Mix The Rescue List directors Alyssa Fedele and Zachary Fink take an observational yet empathetic approach to their subjects by allowing them to tell their stories without the annoying interference of voiceovers or talking heads. Jul 15, 2020 Full Review Carey-Ann Pawsey Orca Sound Loads of sad moments here. Sad moments as you understand how awful these young boys' lives have been. How at such a young age they have been made to suffer. Rated: 3.5/5 Apr 13, 2020 Full Review Read all reviews
