The Imperialists Are Still Alive! (2010)
Visual artist Asya (Élodie Bouchez) follows the politics of her Middle East homeland on TV while enjoying a chic Manhattan lifestyle of parties, supermodels and limos. But when a childhood friend disappears, Asya suspects a CIA abduction and - to her new boyfriend's bemusement - sets out to crack the conspiracy. Nominated for the Sundance's Grand Jury Prize, British-American director Zeina Durra fuses dry comedy with alluring political drama, brilliantly depicting the everyday paranoia of post-9/11 America.

An hour and a half of my life I’ll never get back - Luxor review by JF

Spoiler Alert

I usually like Andrea Riseborough films but this was boring beyond belief - I kept waiting for it to get started but it never did - avoid

Deadly dull - Luxor review by Alphaville

Spoiler Alert

“Slow burn” is an over-statement. Even at 82mins long including credits this seems to last forever. Lots of shots are no more than local colour as Andrea Riseborough wanders around Luxor doing nothing in particular apart from thinking in close-up. She meets old flame Karim Saleh and they wander around together. Thrillingly (!) they even meet other people and have conversations. In other words it’s another Sundance arthouse bore. Oddly there’s an even longer, even worse effort on the DVD that’s not even worth fast-forwarding through.

Slow Burning Character Film - Luxor review by GI

Spoiler Alert

A sparse, slow burning character study that you'll either totally warm to or be bored by. Andre Riseborough plays Hana, a British surgeon who has just finished work in war torn Syria and is on a holiday in the Egyptian city of Luxor where she once lived. Depressed and probably suffering from PTSD she wanders the city in contemplation, reconnecting with a former lover. The film has some interesting lines in a script that could be construed as improvised and it's beautifully shot as Hana walks the ancient city. The undercurrent of despair and regret can be felt but the lack of any dramatic plot leaves the film feeling empty.
