“Three Sudanese men struggle to adjust to life in the United States — from their perspective, a very strange place — in this affecting and well-made culture-shock documentary. The central figures are members of the “Lost Boys” of Sudan, tens of thousands of young men separated from their families, who oftentimes were murdered, during that nation’s horrific civil war.” -San Francisco Chronicle
“So much history and geography is covered in “God Grew Tired of Us,” and the human story it conveys is so moving and so charged with ambiguous moral lessons, that it seems almost irresponsible to complain about it on formal or historical grounds. Let’s put it this way: This is an important film. It’s amazing that it exists, and the events it recounts are still more amazing. Everybody should see it.” -Salon
