  • mpho3's rating of the film Shahid

    Biopics are always dicey. This one is skillfully made - fine acting, lovely soundtrack/score, worthy subject. I did feel a cultural disconnect, particularly in the court scenes. The opposing lawyers shouting over one another in scene after scene was draining, and I didn't understand the implications of attackers blackening his face. Good film. Sadly the perpetrators were never brought to justice. 3.5 stars
