Critics reviews

By focusing on Syria (Assad’s attacks on civilians), Libya (the aftermath of Gaddafi’s reign) and HRW’s historic victory over Milosevic at the Hague, E-Team will highlight the group’s toughest and most admirable work, while in no way ruffling the feathers of any Western viewers. (In other words, Allied war crimes in Iraq and Afghanistan are conspicuously off the table.) Furthermore, the filmmakers seem to have far less faith in the organization they are examining than its members do.

Like The Case Against 8, E-Team is the kind of story that is well served by straightforward vérité filmmaking… One Swiss investigator with an expertise in identifying weaponry plainly states that it “feels good fucking with bad people.” Bravo to that!
