Critic Reviews for The Satanic Verses: 30 Years On

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (2)

  • The Satanic Verses: 30 Years On poses complex and ever pressing questions about free speech, and whether limits should be imposed upon it.

    Mar 7, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Azhar has the knack of treading into tricky territory, normally without putting anybody's backs up.

    Mar 1, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Throughout, I couldn't help wondering what the parallels would be in today's climate of offence-taking as digital artform.

    Mar 5, 2019 | Full Review…
  • All of the discussions led by Azhar about the affair's impact are balanced and measured - except at the end of the film, when things get a bit heated.

    Feb 28, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • The Rushdie affair has many ongoing repercussions, and chief among them, I think, is the confusion and fear that now almost inevitably trails the notion of offence.

    Feb 28, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Azhar's thesis floundered midway through, becoming circular and repetitive, but this fine film reignited in an impassioned closing sequence.
