Review: Clash

This is an edge of your seat sort of film. It takes place in Egypt after the Arab Spring, after the Muslim Brotherhood has been thrown out of the government and the police under Sisi are nominally in charge of a totally chaotic country, while the people are emboldened to take to the streets to push their side’s agenda. The story begins with a couple of AP journalists out covering a protest getting arrested and thrown into the back of a police truck. One is an American-Egyptian and thinks he can use that privilege to get some help. He can’t. Then another group of people are arrested at another protest. And then another. And another. Some are Muslim Brotherhood. Some were just at the wrong place at the wrong time. Some are pro-Police. And all of them are in this nightmare together.
