  1. Wee Hunk's rating of the film Theeb

    I loved just about everything about the movie, other than the message. If becoming a man means exacting revenge, leave me out of it. I guess from the wolf comes the wolf. And the cycle of violence goes on and on.

  8. msmichel's rating of the film Theeb

    The location work in Jordan, doubling for western Arabia, is astounding as is the work of d.p. Wolfgang Thaler in this adventure story set in the crumbling Ottoman empire in 1916 concerning a boy's survival in the desert. The title character is captured by young actor Jacir Eid Al-Hwietat in a natural and sincere performance. Screenplay by the director and Bassel Ghandour offers quiet rewards. Well worth a watch.

  10. CarlosEsquives's rating of the film Theeb

    Una escena a valorar. La emboscada y los dos hermanos cautivos entre los pedregales. Después de eso, "Theeb" merece verse como un contexto histórico sobre la soberbia capitalista y la fragmentación de tribuos en una nación. Esto que ha generado, según la historia, la violencia precoz.

  11. aikeart's rating of the film Theeb

    Universal true... Venganza.

  12. Ryan Borja's rating of the film Theeb

    First-time director Naji Abu Nowar has delivered a punch with this quiet narrative gem about the origin of the Middle Eastern discontent. As a coming-of-age drama, this works in so many levels. Non-professional actor Jacir Eid Al-Hwietat as Theeb is a revelation for carrying the burden that this film imposes.

  13. Justwibi's rating of the film Theeb

    one of the best & most powerfull acting of the year by Jacir Eid Al-Hwietat. Gripping, tense, emotional & Heartbreaking!

  14. Henrique Amud's rating of the film Theeb

    The strong eat the weak. Nowdays when westerns are made by fetishists, Theeb really has the feeling (and the guts) of a true western classic. It's slow, arid, a smart. kill of be killed with great performance by Jacir Eid Al-Hwietat and Hassan Mutlag Al-Maraiyeh.

  15. Adam Cross's rating of the film Theeb

    Deserves more attention for awards than it's getting and I detest the fact this film is being described as a "Bedouin Western". Why must we put American standards on films to make them attractive to the west? This is a fantastic Jordanian film, let's not weaken it with sub-par American standards.

  16. janice.hughes's rating of the film Theeb

    I hope this beautiful work of art wins its BAFTA and Oscar first film nominations by the double act of Jordanian Naji Abu Nowar and Rupert Lloyd who met when they were only 5 at school in Oxford. They lived with the Bedouin for over a year before filming started. For 1916 in the Ottoman war,they cast the young and very shy Jacir Eid Al-Hwietat from southern Jordan as Theeb, who delivers a truly stunning performance.

  17. Diego Carrera's rating of the film Theeb

    Ford meets Lean in the Ottoman Empire.

  18. IsmailBakry's rating of the film Theeb

    that blend of a simple perspective of an adventure, the subtle mention of the historical era, the breathtaking shooting location, and most importantly the extraordinary expressive young actor created an unforgettable survival feature, the best this year. yes, I'm side-eyeing The Revenant.

  20. -REM-'s rating of the film Theeb

  21. Zac Weber's rating of the film Theeb

    The on-location shooting in Jordan provides some really wonderful imagery, and director Naji Abu Nowar does an excellent job of providing small details that add context to the grueling personal narrative.

  22. ginobartolomi's rating of the film Theeb

    Quietly brilliant, Theeb is as subtle as it is startling. It's a unique take on the coming-of-age story, told through brotherhood, violence, confusion, betrayal...acting is phenomenal, the score and the geography of the desert are characters of their own. Definitely one of the most impressive films I've seen all year!

  23. nouvelle vague 1960's rating of the film Theeb

    "Theeb" has been described as a "Bedouin Western" and is the story of a young boys journey from innocence to becoming a "Man".In fact,the central theme of the film,is change.We see it in the desert bandits, who once guided pilgrims.Pilgrims who now journey to Mecca,on the " Iron Donkey "We see it in the appearance of the British officer from an outside war.A war which will change everything for Theeb and Arabia.

  24. Carlos Filipe Freitas's rating of the film Theeb

    What to do when, in this ominous case, the enemy is your only way to stay alive?
