Documentaries like this, on this kind of subject, really put me in a bind. How much can you separate the content from the presentation, and is there even any value in doing so? We've all heard the perennial, pedantic refrain, "But how is it as a movie?," but there's no way to truly separate a film from the world and history that surrounds both of you.
I may personally feel that the editing gets a little repetitive, and that Fayyad betrays an odd indulgent flourish at the very beginning and end. Even so, I believe Fayyad's dispatches from the front lines are necessary human documents, and the Direct Cinema footage he captures is always authentic - to nerve-racking levels.
In all seriousness, I spent half the running time convinced I was going to throw up.
