Movie Info

Moazzam Begg has experienced a generation of conflict. The Confession captures the entirety of Begg's story, from his forced confession and testimony as a free man, to his experience as a British Muslim and living the War on Terror. Commissioned by BBC Storyville and the BFI, The Confession is a gripping account of the rise of modern jihad, its descent into terror and the disastrous reaction of the West. The Confession had its world premiere at Sheffield Doc/Fest this year and was shortlisted as a nominee for the Grand Jury prize. The London premiere of The Confession will take place at Bertha DocHouse on 22nd July 2016 as part of the Doc/Fest Picks weekend.

Critic Reviews for The Confession

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (2) | Fresh (5)

  • The film is a long interview, interspersed with news footage, but what makes it compelling is the smooth, wary intelligence of Begg as he answers for his actions -- and others' suspicions -- which resulted in him being tortured in prison.

  • In this post-Chilcot moment, this principled, consistent testimony - coming as it does from deep within Islam - assumes a rare gravity and profound moral force.

    Mike McCahill

    Guardian
    Top Critic
  • What makes The Confession so effective is that we as viewers are never explicitly asked to take Moazzam Begg's side; merely to listen to what he has to say.

    April 1, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Far from being a shock expos, the film sees Moazzam argue his beliefs with intelligence, compassion and valuable insight.

    January 1, 2017 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • In Ashish Ghadiali's interesting but profoundly un-cinematic documentary The Confession, we hear one man's very personal experiences during the war on terror.
