Time Out says

4 out of 5 stars

In telling the story of assassinated Pakistani Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto, Duane Baughman and Johnny O'Hara's doc not only recounts the leader's life and career; it also offers a fascinating look back at the history of her troubled nation, wisely placing its current political volatility in an easily graspable context. And rather than treat its subject as the sort of martyr to democracy that makes good copy in the West, Bhutto digs deeper by drawing on a range of conflicting voices (including a hostile niece who blames her aunt for her father's death) to suss out the ultimate legacy of this problematic figure.
