It's an exhilarating, though unfocused, look at how the country reached its tipping point, one that feels unfiltered in ways both good and bad.

Stirringly in-your-face documentary about the Arab Spring revolution is a priceless historical, human document.

The sociably close camerawork and vivid HD photography, which gains a kind of humid vibrance by night, foster the sense of being in the moment.

An absolutely breathtaking and politically committed chronicle of the events that continue to shake the Middle East. Documentary film-making at its pinnacle.

The result may occasionally be more of a journalistic scrapbook than a Wisemanian all-points portrait.
