  1. FISCHER's rating of the film Sobibor, Oct. 14, 1943, 4 p.m.

    C'est avec une positive austérité dans le filmage et une efficacité bienvenue que ce documentaire essentiel met en lumière un épisode souvent méconnu d'une rare révolte abouti d'un camp de concentration nazi érigé pour l'exécrable "solution finale"... www.cinefiches.com

  2. José Neves's rating of the film Sobibor, Oct. 14, 1943, 4 p.m.

    A memory's voice that represents a writing, a letter, in the spaces that time annulled but that were part of what more abject happened in Europe's recent history. The letter that the voice introduces is a calligraphy that enters the gaze and fills the apparent anonymity of the images and occupies them with a concomitant, imaginary vision, where lies the truth, the fantasmatic past that must be kept alive, inscribed.

  3. Marc St-Cyr (Death cinéphilia)'s rating of the film Sobibor, Oct. 14, 1943, 4 p.m.

    Un grand accompagnement à la Shoah. Par contre, je trouve que le cinéaste-historien Lanzmann prêche trop dans le film; ses questions et son point de vue sont trop orientées (but de commémorer l'épopée héroïque de ses juifs révoltés). Par contre, les « reconstitutions » des trajets, les images évocatrices et l'extraordinaire témoignage de Yehuda Lerner donnent une grande force au film

  4. João Eça's rating of the film Sobibor, Oct. 14, 1943, 4 p.m.

    a curious appendix to "Shoah" lacking its point of view complexity or its metonymic potency.

  5. StellaWasaDiver's rating of the film Sobibor, Oct. 14, 1943, 4 p.m.

    My only complaint is the same I had for Shoah: that Lanzmann didn't just subtitle the Hebrew, but instead makes us sit there watching the speaker, then listening to the French translation (and for me, reading the English subs).
