"Offers a front-row seat to a landmark Erin Brockovich-style trial… an incredibly polished film."
- Peter Debruge, VARIETY FOUR STARS!
"As gripping as any fictional courtroom drama"
- The Independent
“Through his intelligently crafted documentary, Gertten not only tells a powerful story about the negligence of a large corporation in protecting the health of its employees, but he brings attention to an important issue that might make people think twice before picking up their next bunch of bananas or carton of juice with the name ‘Dole’ on it.”
- Juliana Appenrodt, Daily Trojan
“BANANAS!* shines a spotlight on this fascinating and controversial court room case, revealing the inner decisions of a major international corporation and the tireless efforts of two small law firms taking on the big guns - a true David and Goliath story.”
- Adam Rabiner, Brooklyn Food Coalition
“An extremely well crafted, powerful chronicle of an important issue.”
- Jesther Entertainment
“An extremely well crafted film, in addition to the courtroom drama, there is raw human emotion and even humor. This is life. This is litigation. This is a front row seat to a history making event.”
“Whether or not you end up rooting for the underdog, Bananas!* is an informative and multifaceted documentary that will make you think twice about, of all things, bananas.”
- Sierra Club
“The documentary asks what’s at stake in truth, for whom, from plaintiffs to lawyers to corporate executives. If courtrooms aren’t built to reveal truths or deliver justice for ‘little people,’ they are all too often where consequences become clear.”
"The film Dole Food Co. doesn’t want you to see"
- Uprising Radio, LA
