  • saitosouta's rating of the film The Trap

    Cannes #2019 No.2: Asphxiatingly ash-gray like desolate ruins in Egyptian run-down, "Fakh" depicts insecurely amorphous relationship between belligerent man and submissive woman. From tender to ominous, from vomitting to heartrending, dir. Riyadh changes its atmosphere flexibly with social-realist eyes. It's very devastating to see sexism full of dust and shades still exist in Egypt (or the world). A powerfull short.

  • zoerose's rating of the film The Trap

    Powerful even though sickening. From the rat-infested "love nest" to the smell of fear throughout this short. Stomach-gripping realism about the dangers that women face from closed ones. Between rock and a hard place with damaging consequences brought by men with toxic egos and a false sence of honor.
