Boyd van Hoeij of The Hollywood Reporter called the first part a "frequently fascinating collage of stories" and the second part "an appropriately striking, dramatic and even mirthful work that, however, would make little sense on its own."
Richard Brody of The New Yorker considered the series a "passionately investigative, floridly imaginative triptych" and its first installment "an uproarious and scathing, compassionate and urgent outburst.” Brody went on to conclude that "Gomes single-handedly reinvent[ed] the political cinema.”
