Betsy Sharkey
Los Angeles Times
The filmmaker is at his best unspooling the politics of independence, which he does with such confident fervor that you always understand the fight. Full Review
David Fear
Time Out New York
Even the movie's trio of outstanding actors come off like mouthpieces from a creaky Group Theater play, spiced with an occasional Cagneyism or two. Full Review
Lisa Schwarzbaum
Entertainment Weekly
Rachid Bouchareb's intensely dramatized, passionately partisan story of militancy in the struggle for Algerian independence from France after World War II makes effective use of "Godfather" storytelling theatrics. Full Review
Lou Lumenick
New York Post
A powerful, decades-spanning epic about that country's fight for independence centering on three brothers. Full Review
Michelle Orange
A companion film to "Days of Glory," Rachid Bouchareb's 2006 feature about Algerian soldiers who fought for France in World War II, Outside the Law is another historical drama with a heavy heart and a knack for genre. Full Review
