A policeman who follows his own set of rules (in classic film noir style) investigates the killing of a woman at the Nile Hilton Hotel in the days before the 2011 Egyptian Revolution in this narrative thriller. Writer-director Tarik Saleh takes the audience on a fast-paced journey through the streets of Cairo, giving us a front-row view of a society crumbling from within as corruption at all levels sends citizens into the street in the background, barely noticed by the expert camera. Instead, the lens is focused on the daily lives of Egyptians under the soon to be toppled regime, offering an inside view into the struggles that sparked the Arab Spring. ~JS
