The constant flow of background images can be distracting, but this is nonetheless a fascinating film that offers an unexpected and valuable perspective on the on-going Arab-Israeli conflict.

Articulate interviews and an unusually creative visual style make the picture as lively to watch as it is illuminating to think about.

Grainy video and gimmicky editing give this documentary an amateurish feel, but Samir's charming, rueful interlocutors shine through.

Samir's presentation is uninspired and too long. It's outdated, too.

The film demonstrates a grasp of complicated, unfamiliar affairs -- but it dillydallies around and runs in too many circles.
