Bryan Fogel’s documentary THE DISSIDENT feels essential. This is a somber piece of work; it’s not likely to cheer anyone up. But if the details of the Khashoggi case aren’t for the faint of heart, facing the facts squarely is at least somewhat cleansing. And the story of a man who put his life on the line for his ideals, it’s as bracing a narrative as any novelist could invent.
As comprehensive and sobering an account of the murder of Saudi dissident Jamal Khashoggi as one could want is offered up in THE DISSIDENT. This is a documentary both tragic and poignant.
