The Judge is a thoughtful, sympathetic study.
It's an exceptional, multi-dimensional look at the culture from the inside.
Al-Faqih is a role model, and Cohn makes a strong case for her.
Although Faqih speaks eloquently about women's rights and what she stands for, a bit more personal introspection might have been illuminating.
"The Judge" lays out facts while avoiding making easy judgments about how Palestinian men view and treat women.
People who need a fair-minded adjudicator like Kholoud Al-Faqih and are fortunate to have her.
Equally frustrating and inspiring, The Judge is an accomplished tale of bravery and justice
...offers insight into Palestinian society and politics as well as providing a compelling portrait of the remarkable woman who is its primary subject.
Kohn makes good directorial choices ... intercutting interviews, so that they seem more like a dialogue, following Al-Faqih as she walks about to avoid the 'talking head' feel and inserting aerial footage to bolster the sense of movement.
The Judge is a fascinating insight into a rarely glimpsed world.
The Judge is the rare documentary that locks you in from the start and never let's go.
The film itself isn't up to the actors' performances. It is a standard issue family soap, wonderfully enhanced by their work, but no timeless classic.
