4 stars out of 5 -- "British filmmaker James Marsh recreates this tale of an ambitious primate language study through traditional face-the-camera interviews, clever graphics and dramatic recreations. A powerful musical score adds gravitas." -- Steve Ramos , (Box Office)
3.5 stars out of 4 -- "PROJECT NIM, a fascinating documentary, follows the life of a chimp named Nim Chimpsky as it's raised like a human baby....The chimp emerges from this experience as a more admirable creature than many of its humans." -- Roger Ebert , (Chicago Sun-Times)
"PROJECT NIM, an enthralling and appalling documentary by James Marsh, chronicles the collision of two species." , (Wall Street Journal)
"Through no fault of his own, Nim's life turned out to be a flesh-and-blood Rorschach test that revealed as much about human nature as it did about the capabilities of chimpanzees." -- Kenneth Turan , (Los Angeles Times)
"[A] probing, unsettling study of primate behavior....Mr. Marsh is less interested in comparatively dry matters of linguistics or neurobiology than in a humid, messy domain of identity and emotion that has, in the past, been the terrain of psychoanalysis." -- A. O. Scott , (New York Times)
"Very quickly it becomes clear that the life of Nim Chimpsky is foremost a story about the human animal, and human behavior." -- Michelle Orange , (Movieline)
4 stars out of 5 -- "Marsh's sensitive doc is a light look at some dark clues to the kind of creatures we really are." -- Jonathan Crocker , (Total Film)
"[A] fascinating and in many ways tragic documentary..." -- Grade: B+ -- Owen Gleiberman , (Entertainment Weekly)
"PROJECT NIM is a valuable insight into the current state of the anthropomorphic imagination." -- Chris Darke , (Sight and Sound)
