"Hauntingly beautiful and deeply felt… some of the best Afghanistan war-related storytelling I've seen."
Hank Stuever, The Washington Post
"The last 10 years have produced an array of documentaries about post-9/11 America, but few are as haunting and compassionate as Heather Courtney’s ‘Where Soldiers Come From.’" Also chose WSCF as #3 of the best nonfiction TV of 2011.
Matt Zoller Seitz, Salon
"Revelatory… emotional and engrossing."
Steven James Snyder, Time
“More than most documentaries on the subject, Where Soldiers Come From builds a world for these young men and watches it turn upside down, reframing itself slowly and painfully around the unforeseen consequences of snap decisions."
Ella Taylor, NPR
"A profoundly moving experience. One of the best movies I have seen this year."
"Packs a savage, but understated, punch."
