Movie Info

RACHEL is a startlingly rigorous, fascinating and deeply moving investigatory documentary that examines the death of peace activist and International Solidarity Movement (ISM) member Rachel Corrie, who was crushed by an Israeli army bulldozer in the Gaza Strip in 2003. A few weeks after her little-reported death, an inquiry by Israeli military police concluded that Corrie died in an accident.

Fascinating if uneven...

Top Critic

Rachel is an example of how to tell a complicated, controversial story without sacrificing humanity, heart or a sense of horror.

Bitton, thorough in her research, shows but never tells, letting the evidence speak for itself.

Top Critic

The film tries so hard to emulate cold court testimony that it misses a crucial fact. A girl died.

New York Press

A poignant documentary about the death of an American idealist working for the liberation of the Palestinian people and peace in the Middle-East.

Spirituality and Practice

It's impressive that documentarian Simone Bitton manages to remain neutral for so much of her film.

NYC Film Critic

Simone Bitton's Rachel purports to be an only mildly political investigation of an undeniably polemical tragedy.

Slant Magazine

[B]est at . . .probing . . . Israeli government's justifications, but doesn't bring same level of inquisition in looking at how Rachel arrived [at Gaza] that fateful day.

Full Review… | October 11, 2010

Bitton operates at a cool, investigatory remove that's not as objective as it looks ... nevertheless, it's a well structured, sometimes riveting piece of information gathering.

Boxoffice Magazine

It is a disturbing and heartbreaking portrait of a lost life amidst an environment of perpetual violence.

Full Review… | October 9, 2010
Film Threat

Unfiltered truths collide with spin, touching on young American peace activist Rachel Corrie, buried alive by the Israeli military in Palestine, as the director solemnly contemplates the only visual trace of the crime, 'the obscenity of the photograph.'

Full Review… | October 7, 2010
WBAI Radio

A moving account of the martyrdom of Rachel Corrie directed by an Arab Jew, just one of many Israelis and Jews of other countries beginning to question a brutal system that killed this idealistic young American and countless Palestinians.
