Critic Reviews for The Insult (L'insulte)
Working its way through courtroom arguments, the movie never transcends the main tension established early on, but Doueiri does a competent job of exploring the sources of anger on both sides without valorizing either of them.
This gorgeously shot and classily acted feature might be a reel too long but is nonetheless a fascinating piece of work ...
The tinderbox of Lebanese politics and identity sparks into a controlled conflagration in Ziad Doueiri's calculatedly explosive drama "The Insult."
As drama, The Insult is only about halfway convincing, but as a rhetorical intervention against Lebanon's legacy of division it has merit.
How Joelle Touma's script progresses is heavy-handed in its desire to augment the tensions and provide justifications, but it's still powerful nonetheless.
The latest allegorical drama from Lebanese auteur Doueiri (West Beirut, The Attack) draws on the history of the Middle East and long-standing tensions between Palestinians and Lebanese Christians. But even without that subtext, the film would still play.
