"An intimate, illuminating doc that puts the focus on M.I.A.'s activism instead of her music and is, in some ways, all the more admirable for it." (Empire Magazine)
"At a time when pop profiles are increasingly bland self-promotion...this fascinating film from Stephen Loveridge is unafraid to mix the personal with the political and the painfully intimate." (Times UK)
