News & Interviews for Meeting Resistance
Critic Reviews for Meeting Resistance
Of all the Iraq documentaries that have been released since the war began five years ago, this is the one that most seriously addresses the nature of the insurgency.
Meeting Resistance is worth the effort. It tells a nuanced story of the Iraqi resistance that American media rarely has fleshed out.
The problem with the film is that it makes for better journalism than cinema.
Offers a rare glimpse into the hearts and minds of those who have dedicated themselves to ridding Iraq of its invaders, captured by intrepid reporters who risked their lives at a time when fragile trust was still possible.
Although at times tedious and repetitive, Meeting Resistance is nonetheless an important journalistic document about the Iraqi insurgency.
Audience Reviews for Meeting Resistance
An important and timely film, "Meeting Resistance" is about the insurgency in Iraq, and according to Sidney Blumenthal, is ?the single most astonishing documentary yet on the Iraq war.? The Washington DC based filmmakers (one a former British soldier, the other a conflict photographer) built relationships with Iraqis early on and gained unparalleled access to make this eye-opening film.
