Critical Acclaim

The story Mr. Walton tells — this is his first documentary — primarily concerns a generational divide and a clash of cultures, and he may have thought it best not to blur that focus. But a strong benefit of Arctic Son is a chance to see something of the country and the lives that remain at the mercy of others.”
