Ziad Doueiri’s “The Insult” reviewed in the New York Times.
“There is something undeniably exhilarating about the film’s honest assessment of the never-ending conflict between decency and cruelty that rages in every nation, neighborhood and heart.”
The movie has made it into the final nine films shortlisted for an Academy Award nomination in the foreign language category. A first in the history of Lebanese cinema. The five selected as nominees will be announced on Jan. 23. 2018
