"Harris, Bouzereau, and editor Will Znidaric make the complexity and importance of these questions clear by simply letting the films and filmmakers speak. It’s rich, nuanced stuff, and it’s a credit to Five Came Back that there’s no attempt to answer the questions. It’s quite enough show us how much was at stake and how murky were the waters in which they stood."
- Allison Shoemaker, AV Club
"With its use of archival clips, men talking into the camera and narration by Meryl Streep, “Five Came Back” might seem like standard documentary filmmaking. But it’s easy to overlook the complexity of its editing, which distills a trove of footage in superbly illustrative ways."
- Ben Kenigsberg, New York Times
-Oliver Peters, Creative Planet Network
"It’s a vital account of understanding the medium that affects us all, be it film, television, or whatever we watch in the future. Remember the past to prepare for the future. Lucky for us, “Five Came Back” makes the process enthralling."
- Ben Travers, Indiewire
