Clash is far from an easy watch, but the story's ripped-from-the-headlines energy more than makes up for its unrelentingly grim tone and sketchily developed characters.

Within this roiling Petri dish, the filmmakers cultivate a dynamic portrait of Egypt, with its dense social, political and religious layers.
Its limited point-of-view says enough to the original horror and poignantly makes humanity a non-political issue.
A film like this needs its people to underline what it means to be human during times of political strife, but with so many bodies shoved inside the van, it's difficult to keep track of who's who and why they're mad.
"Clash" turns into a full-fledged horror movie, albeit one without the fake comfort of a supernatural or science-fiction pretext. It's just man's inhumanity to man, in full sway.
Combines claustrophobic intimacy with some logistically epic scene-setting.
The film's sheer bravura is breathtaking.
Clash - original title Eshtebak - is a terrific technical achievement and amazingly gripping, given the restricted setting.
Arguably one of the most important Egyptian filmmakers currently working today, Mohamed Diab is an unflinching director who does not shy away from explicit commentary about current events in his homeland.
Shocking and inventive, Clash is a fascinating and immersive watch that holds up its style of filming remarkably well.
The van becomes a microcosm of the world outside: chaotic, out of control, cruel, but broken intermittently by glimpses of humour and humanity.
[Director Mohamed] Diab (who co-wrote the screenplay with his brother Khaled Diab) doesn't side with or against anyone ... [T]he filmmaker is on the side of humanity.
It's not a pleasant ride-you'll be relieved when you can escape this patrol wagon from hell. But Diab has created a thought-provoking and timely hell all the same.
