Recent praise for Tales from the Organ Trade:

 
This is a serious, superb and essential documentary that cuts through the sensationalism and hysteria surrounding its subject. It’s one of the most impressive, and incisive, works of investigative journalism I’ve seen onscreen in a long time. It’s also a virtuosic feat of story-­telling… a nuanced, analytical portrait of the fierce ethical dilemmas on both sides of the issue.
