It's an ungainly documentary featuring animated sequences, but it also gives a sense of a country ruined by tribal wars and menaced by the temptation of easy cash.
Disjointed and unfocused, "Last Hijack" adds precious little to this body of work.
Despite providing a sober and hauntingly frustrated glimpse into a world that most Western eyes will never get to see for themselves, this portrait of life as a Somali pirate is limited by what the camera can't see.
The filmmakers have gotten extraordinary access to Mohamed and ravaged Somalia.
Relentlessly brooding and engaging, it is certainly worth seeing.
Although a little messy in places, it's a fascinating look at world we would have little access to.
Last Hijack is good on context and nicely presented. Sadly, it fails to convert Nura's biography into a coherent narrative and contains nothing that might be mistaken for a denouement.
Mixing animation and documentary in evocative ways, Last Hijack is an illuminating look at the thrill and the toll of Somali piracy.
Easily one of the best documentaries of 2014, "Last Hijack" explores the motivations, circumstances, fears and dreams of a real-life pirate in an admirably objective fashion, while also visualizing his thoughts via gorgeous, lucid-dream-like animation.
LAST HIJACK isn't an especially entertaining film, but it's a troubling one and worth seeing even if only for the insight into this phenomenon that it provides.
With intriguing use of animation, this doc reminds us that pirates may be ordinary citizens struggling to make a living.
The dark, surreal animation unearths the personal side of the story: its nightmarish aspect and traumas.
