5 Broken Cameras Reviews
Los Angeles Times
As raw as the material of "5 Broken Cameras" can be, it is also lyrical and elegiac.
San Francisco Chronicle
Walter V. Addiego
[It] makes no pretense at balance - it's unambiguously pro-Palestinian - but it offers a unique and intimate record.
Takes the rough material of one man's life and transforms it into a story that is universal and urgent, offering firsthand witness to events that are too often portrayed as distant and impossible to understand.
It offers a look at how a tireless protest can sometimes only come at the expense of one's own daily existence.
New York Times
"5 Broken Cameras" provides a grim reminder - just in case you needed one - of the bitter intractability of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
What we do see has an immediacy and intimacy that's involving. It also can feel a bit wayward and cumulatively wearying.
New York Post
The issues are complex and not easily solved. But no matter which side you are on, you'll be moved by this intimate work.
Wall Street Journal
This is how the conflict looks from the other side of the barrier.
The New Republic
[A] bit jagged, inevitably incomplete, and in no way news-breaking: it is simply moving.
Startlingly intimate and direct, this first-person doc by Emad Burnat and Guy Davidi requires multiple viewings for anyone eager to work out how it could have been shot with such precision and visual ingenuity under such plainly chaotic conditions.
It's impossible to understate the importance of this documentary in helping us see exactly what life is like in occupied Palestine.
Unlike the more sophisticated chronicle of resistance Burma VJ, it pays scant attention to the larger political context or, indeed, the strategies and tactics of protest in an age that offers sophisticated means of media management.
East Bay Express
Powerfully moving homemade doc.
Shocking footage details the horrors of the village's daily routine; but amidst the violence, a spirit of resistance prevails, providing hope of redemption.
With Burnat's eerily emotionless narration serving as a contrast to the heart-wrenching story, what we end up with is a captivating portrait of the frailty and the failures of humanity
...has a more than worthy subject, but its raw power has been blunted by a post production team intent on drawing pretty parallels.
As the title says, Emad's five cameras pay the price for his freedom of expression by being shot (one camera shot twice) or smashed by Israeli soldiers.
Provides a birdsong of perseverance in the face of irrational violence, immense historic anger, and grim, seemingly insurmountable realities.
A truly powerful statement on the horrors of occupation and the heart of the resistance to it.
Nora Lee Mandel
[I]n the middle of the West Bank . . .this unusual blending of the personal and the political moves intensely, if narrowly, behind the shouting and shooting on the TV news.
