Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

""Where Are You Taking Me?" is no survey of Uganda; it's too quiet, slow and personal for that. But the film is an unusual, visually rich visit to the nation."

"The documentary revels in the simple joys of finding something that captures the eye and paying attention to it."

‑ Benjamin Mercer, Village Voice
