One Sentence Review: The Square (2013)

thesquare

Jehane Noujaim’s (Control Room) new documentary, The Square, brings the abstract struggle of the ongoing Egyptian revolution into sharp perspective with incredible, on-the-ground HD footage of the various sit-ins at Tahrir Square that brought down two regimes; but, while its subjects come across as brave and forward-thinking, the film’s light on what these revolutionaries actually consider to be a brighter future — then again, without money and power, perhaps they don’t even know.
