  1. A tale of horror, heroism, unimaginable physical challenges, and, yes, cannibalism, Stranded offers the kind of real-life drama that can't help but bring up notions of God, fate, and nature's imposing will.
  2. At just over two hours, Stranded is nonstop harrowing. It has cumulative power.
  3. 90
    Intimate, terrifying and positively riveting documentary.
  4. An exceptional film, at once disturbing and elevating, deliberate yet powerful.
  5. 90
    Despite all the horror and anguish, the film ends on a note of serene acceptance, deep gratitude toward the dead, and wonder at the unlikely miracle of life.
  6. Remarkable documentary filmmaking, unflinching and full of unlikely grace.
  7. 88
    So powerful is Stranded that when the lucky few finally make their way back to civilization, you feel as thrilled as if they were your own loved ones.

    Grueling yet ultimately exhilarating.
  9. 83
    Arijon's choice to film the survivors returning to the Andes with their children pays huge dividends, leading to an ending that puts the real meaning of their ordeal in moving terms.
