In the now-total absence of those who witnessed the War, They Shall Not Grow Old feels like it will open audiences up for a new type of human connection with that era of our past. Full Review

No matter where you fall on the political spectrum, it's worth a look, to help make sense of the past and the role it played in creating our current world. Full Review

It's very compelling to hear these men talk about what they went through and the horrors of World War I... Very interesting, very moving film. Full Review

Rating: 4/4 -- You're liable to leave the theater with the strains of "Mademoiselle from Armentieres" ringing in your ears and visuals that will haunt you, possibly for years. Full Review

"They Shall Not Grow Old" is a nearly great talking-head documentary in which the talking heads are never seen, only heard. Full Review
