An Honest & Emotional Account

The emotional depth of this documentary is vast, impressive, immersive. In "Jim", James Foley is beautifully dissected as one of the most honest and kind-hearted conflict journalists of any time.

I find it hard to review this film because of how powerful the entire experience was. I teared up half a dozen times, I couldn't find many words to say to my friends afterwards and neither could they. The documentary seemed to have taken control of us. But the moment that topped off the experience was after the Sundance screening, the director, James Foley's parents, and the young French journalist that was in captivity with James came out for a Q&A. The entire 500 seat audience gave a standing ovation, many in tears.

I'm not sure how else to explain it without giving anything away. It was hard to stomach some of the more graphic and real images from inside Syria. Overall it was an incredible viewing experience, one that needs to be shared with as many people as possible. Especially in 2016 when ISIS appears to be a real threat.

Journalism 101...

James Foley was one of those crazy-brave journalists who are the very backbone of any legitimate 21st century Democracy- someone who quite literally put it all on the line to tell us all just what the f--- was REALLY going on around the world. DEMOCRACY NOW! was where I first saw Foley, and I was impressed from the first; like Amy Goodman and everyone else I've discovered on DEMOCRACY NOW!, Foley risked his life to get to the Truth and to present it to the world. His final moments are hard to watch (and here I'm talking about what we see in JIM: THE JAMES FOLEY STORY; I have no morbid interest whatsoever in seeing the rest). This documentary is as much a tribute to the Spirit of True Journalism as it is to the man who inspired it.

Truth from the Field

I saw this at a sell out crowd at Hot Docs Toronto last night. All I can say is that there wasn't a dry eye anywhere next to me. What I thought was really moving was what the director said. He wanted the world to see his friend Jim Foley as he really was, not by the various stories and false accounts that were circulating. What comes across loud and clear is that everyone that encountered Jim was impressed by his ability to connect with people no matter what their circumstances and also his lack of guile or ulterior motive. If ever there was the right person at the right time he was it. Although our world is totally connected, there is a huge lack of timely and correct information. We desperately need the Jim Foleys of this world.
