    Bogged down by speechifying and a plodding pace, Miral is well-intentioned but doesn't achieve the searing emotional resonance suggested by the story. show more

    Any film as politically specific as Miral needs to be addressed on two levels, as a movie and as, from a certain viewpoint, a polemic. If a viewer can separate one from the other - and some may not - there's an intense, novelistic drama here. show more

    Timothy McVeigh? Oh please he was a wackjob with a few wackjob followers. No comparison to a race of people who teach terrorism from the age of 3 years old.
