[Habie uses] a narrative framework similar to that of Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. But whereas that Michel Gondry comedy kept its central plot in focus as it became more visually elaborate, this just grows more alienating.
Suliman ("Paradise Now," "The Attack") dominates the screen as Khaled, utterly compelling in and out of jail, his magnificent perf tying up cinematic loose ends.
Addressing the Israeli-Palestinian conflict through stylized compositions, nontraditional narrative and a stripped-down aesthetic, Jessica Habie's "Mars at Sunrise" distills a war among many to a single, devastating duel.
Using its narrative as a launching pad for abstract visuals, the picture reminds viewers that even the most striking images demand context to create anything like drama.
What I most appreciate about Habie's little cinematic gem is that it ends on an uncontrived, completely believable up beat.
[Jessica] Habie's fractured narrative style-particularly her arbitrary shifts from Khaled's perspective to Eyal's to (apparently) third-person reality-stymies the accumulation of any dramatic momentum from scene to scene
A dream-like collage of the Palestinian experience focused on its artist lead character. An art movie in the best sense of the term.
Attempts to bring experimental cinema to the Israeli occupation and has flashes of innovative success amidst didacticism, confusing imagery [and] Suliman's powerful scenes.
Defiant doppelgangers limn the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, but didacticism destroys the tension.
