Critic Reviews for The Nile Hilton Incident

All Critics (55) | Top Critics (13) | Fresh (50) | Rotten (5)

  • [Writer-director Tarik] Saleh leans a bit too heavily on mystery cliche in defining his protagonist, but in general the film-noir sensibility meshes well with the political story.

  • ... one of those extremely tense and increasingly violent yarns where the guilt runs all the way to the top.

  • Well-executed satire on corruption during the Mubarak era.

    March 2, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Morose, hangdog Noredin, so unconvincing in his colonel's uniform, is a satisfying antihero.

    March 2, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • It manages the feat of remaining a moody and atmospheric private eye-style mystery while offering more insight into the final days of Mubarak's presidency than any didactic, self-righteous documentary could ever manage.

    February 28, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • The evocation of that old film noir feeling is hugely effective here: Dad telling his freshly-bribed son "You can't buy dignity," the fantastic slow zoom on a love scene reflected in a two-way mirror, even the beguiling torch singer.
