  • "Mosul" isn't the kind of easy, sentimental TV viewing often provided during the holidays, but it is a potent reminder of the deadly struggles and sacrifices some people have endured to earn their freedom.

  • This is one of the best movies of 2020.

    November 30, 2020 | Rating: 4/4 | Full Review…
  • Some of Carnahan's choices rely on certain Western stereotypes to underscore the awfulness of the Islamic State ... but what Mosul gets right more often is its prioritization of the Iraqi perspective, and the weight of all this violence.

    November 27, 2020 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Balances admirable ambition (it's an American film, but the characters speak Arabic) with the cruder goosing strategies and red-meat dialogue of a revenge picture.

    November 26, 2020 | Full Review…
  • It's well-made and engrossing.

    November 26, 2020 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Favors a sense of you-are-there authenticity over any kind of deeper characterization or geopolitical context. The result is generically gripping but ultimately not something that lingers.
