Critic Reviews for State 194
The efforts of these cock-eyed optimists are worth being seen so they won't be forgotten under the usual media onslaught of the louder preventers of peace.
A bold and illuminating documentary about the two-year campaign by a visionary and courageous Palestinian prime minister to make his country the 194th member state of the United Nations.
State 194 delivers hope, frustration and more evidence that politics should not be left just to politicians.
It is nigh impossible to clarify through summarizing the situation in the area and its ramifications for the world arena, much less in ninety-eight screen minutes.
As an aid to better understanding this vital, complex dispute, the film is definitely worth a look.
Sadly, the overall effect of "State 194" is a fresh wave of frustration and discouragement over a heartbreaking and seemingly insurmountable political standoff and its human toll.
The film does the job, albeit less thoroughly and with more needless digressions than would even a lengthy magazine article on the subject.
Is the two-state solution more appealing to Westerners with the ability to ignore the conflict? Will Palestine gain international recognition? The film delivers no answers, but it ably articulates how important it will be to keep asking those questions.
