  1. captainfez's rating of the film Crayons of Askalan

    As fun as a film on coping strategies could be.

  2. Rosina Rossini's rating of the film Crayons of Askalan

    Very cheap looking documentary that excuses Palestinian Islamic violence for the sake of art. A tale that would have made an interesting short film, but a very clumsy long one.

  4. Edgar Teps's rating of the film Crayons of Askalan

  5. Juan Javier's rating of the film Crayons of Askalan

    buena, aunque quizá innecesariamente redundante y confusa

  6. Lola Almeria's rating of the film Crayons of Askalan

  7. tinderness's rating of the film Crayons of Askalan

    Bei allem Respekt vor dem Leiden des palästinensischen Volkes, bei allem Respekt vor dem Leiden des jüdischen Volkes, bei allem Respekt vor dem Leiden aller unterdrückten Völker; die Kunst überwindet alle Grenzen des Leides.

  8. LibertyCapz's rating of the film Crayons of Askalan

    Highly stylized and dramatized documentary that portrays the daily life of Palestinian artist Zuhdi Al Adawi whilst he was locked up in an Israeli prison. There are several segments sprinkled throughout the film that I found quite impressive, where they took some of the artist's drawings and tried to recreate and convey them and their meaning through the cinematic medium. In other words, really good stuff.

  9. Pedro Cerisola Cabrera's rating of the film Crayons of Askalan

    It is of great importance that Mubi is showing now this film in the context of the current trial to Ahed Tamimi. Bravo, Mubi.

  10. nica's rating of the film Crayons of Askalan

    “The most beautiful thing that stays with a prisoner is his imagination.” A stunning film about art as a tool of resistance, and an artist incarcerated. I marvel at how the film utilizes specific artworks to perfectly illustrate its artist’s isolation and endurance. Powerful, moving, and one of the best examples of what film and all forms of media are truly for. (#FreePalestine)
