What we think

It’s part old-school legal drama, part examination of the immense human and spiritual cost of America’s heinous foreign policy - an examination that, refreshingly, doesn’t feel the need to centre American feelings.

What others think

This painfully worthy adaptation of former inmate Mohamedou Ould Salahi’s diary stars only good guys, and is hand-wringingly self congratulatory.
Peter Bradshaw The Guardian
Tom Hodge’s score leavens nervy, percussive tones for the prison scenes with a gentle lyricism evoking Slahi’s memories of his home country.
Philip Kemp Sight & Sound
Wasting big-name actors, The Mauritanian is simultaneously over-stuffed and under-powered, turning a horrifying real-life ordeal into something flat and formulaic.
