  • Remarkably accomplished and self-confident. In dramatic terms The Attack borrows a page from Alfred Hitchcock's playbook — an innocent in a strange land, delving into dangerous matters he doesn't understand. In political terms, though, the script is unsparing and ultimately bleak. It doesn't justify terrorism, but it does dramatize the rage and despair that dominate life in the occupied territories.

  • Although the subject matter is inherently disturbing, it’s hard to imagine any audience remaining unmoved by this mournful tale. show more

  • One thing Doueiri didn't get from Tarantino is smirky attitude; The Attack is sad and resigned, but also tender. show more
