Critic Reviews for The Amina Profile

All Critics (27) | Top Critics (15) | Fresh (24) | Rotten (3)

  • The film tries too hard to sensationalize a real-life story that has already been sensationalized enough - the kind that's too strange for fiction - but in doing so undermines the narrative's own weirdness.

    August 21, 2015 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • The film is reminiscent of Catfish in its essential circumstances of love and online deception, but it goes far deeper into how virtual lies cause tangible problems.

    August 20, 2015 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Even those who followed Amina's rise and fall in the ultimately chastened media will find Gay Girl a nifty piece of detective work.

  • "A Gay Girl in Damascus" is like "Catfish" but with global implications.

  • "The Amina Profile" is interested in every level of this complex emotionally-fraught story. This is not just the story of the "catfishing" of Sandra Bagaria. Everyone was catfished.

  • Sophie Deraspe's film is a compelling anatomy of an Internet hoax - one that grabbed headlines amid the revolutionary fervor of the Arab Spring.

  • Amina is documentary filmmaking of the highest sort, an opportunity to expand the horizons of and provoke response from the viewer through the generous and honest reflections of the participants.

  • Deraspe and Bagaria captured my heart and mind on their torturous journey, and the conclusion was far deeper than those opening frames ever alluded to.
