  • Depending on your perspective, Nadav Schirman's troubling documentary is either a story about heroism and friendship or a study in extreme treachery and bad faith.

  • Taut dramatic reconstructions and an extraordinary story of strained allegiances, subterfuge and an unexpected friendship makes the The Green Prince as tense as any Hollywood thriller.

  • Gripping stuff.

  • One of the most incredible chapters in the war between Israel and Palestine deserves a better movie.

  • Together with artfully filmed re-enactments creepily evoking his jail terms and interrogations, they retrace the route he took in his transformation from young Arab activist to political conspirator.

    December 10, 2014 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • It's a movie that raises as many questions as it addresses, and which never quite convincingly answers even the most pressing one: Just what made the son of a radical Palestinian-liberation leader go to work as an Israeli spy?

    A fascinating and suspenseful documentary that tells an almost unbelievable story of a man who betrayed his own culture for what he believed in and two people from different backgrounds who became unexpected friends as they got caught in the eye of an everlasting storm.

    "The Green Prince" is an insightful, fascinating and suspenseful documentary about Mosab Hassan Yousef, who is not only the eldest son of Sheikh Hassan Yousef, one of the founders of Hamas, but also was an informer for Shin Bet, Israeli internal intelligence. So, as you can imagine, this puts him in a great deal of danger, as his handlers weigh the possibility of blowing his cover versus saving lives. At the same time, this also allows for a unique perspective on the Israeli/Palestinian conflict that has been going on for decades with a personal angle.(If I have any trouble with "The Gatekeepers," it is its lack of one.) As much as "The Green Prince" could stop with just Mosab and Gonen Ben Yitzhak, one of his handlers, talking about their unique experiences and still be highly satisfying, the documentary does not stop there, as it has a few visual cards up its sleeve. For example, Mosab is introduced with his face blacked out before being revealed to the audience. Plus, the documentary expertly uses archival material as a reminder of recent history and putting the subjects' story fully into context.
