Critic Reviews for Escape From Dubai: The Mystery of the Missing Princess

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (2)

  • [Latifa] recorded the video in the hope that her endeavour wouldn't be entirely in vain if she didn't. This documentary fully honours that hope.

  • Escape from Dubai proved a damning indictment of an antediluvian, intrinsically unjust regime that seems, like so many others in the region, to operate above the law and beneath the contempt of anyone with any respect for human rights.

    Mar 18, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • This sober, shocking documentary - as lean and measured as its contents are inflammatory - may lead viewers to wonder what the worst outcome for her could have been.

    Mar 8, 2019 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…
  • The film also asks if the image of Dubai being sold to the public, of winter sunshine and luxury hotels, is hiding a brutal dictatorship of human rights abuses.

  • Sometimes it was difficult to believe this was a true report and not the plot of a Rudolph Valentino silent movie.

    Mar 18, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Latifa might now be detained against her will. Yet as she said: "This video means it won't be in vain. I hope some positive change comes out of this." Viewers of this grimly compelling film will hope so, too.
