The Square (Empire On-Demand Review)

SquareSquareThe Square (2014), Netflix

Revolution is always a messy, chaotic and often bloody business, and the Tahrir Square protests that deposed Egyptian dictator Hosni Mubarak were no different. This stirring, starkly immersive film documents the ‘Arab Spring’ uprising and its bloody aftermath from the point of view of those at ground zero, with The Kite Runner actor Khalid Abdalla among the voices crying out for change.

Empire rating: ★★★★
