    It’s like saying Hitler escaped to Argentina; full of suspense but no evidence.
  • Award Winning

    I rented it and it's totally worth it. Such a detailed documentary about something so tragic. The Saudis must not be happy about this.
  • Ignore the false negative reviews. This documentary is a MUST WATCH!

    This incredible documentary is packed with riveting true details about the barbaric murder of acclaimed journalist Jamal Khashoggi. The false negative reviews are EXACTLY why everyone needs to see this film as soon as possible.

    Like the documentary Icarus I think it's a powerful film you could be an Oscar contender. Could it be the trolls refer to in the film have given this movie all these bad reviews. Yeah the price is high but perhaps it's because he couldn't get the support for the film yet hope for including streaming on main stream platform like Icarus did? I am a victim of violence, threats including one over the phone by an NYPD detective, online A lawyer using a fake account threatening me with retaliation and using the "c" word. I sent it to the NYPD who acted on the threat. The city of New York protected all crimes along with the Manhattan DA and enabled even more crimes. Years so before I had reported Jeffrey Epstein for stealing my yard I called the NYPD spoke to detective 1996. When I had a letter published in the New York Times about holocaust start battle over the mural of pain I xeroxed it and wrote a letter on this rock say the Manhattan DA. The year before I had a letter in the financial times about basic human rights women's rights how women are seen the male gaze --I can tell you as someone who cannot get justice and continues to be a victim of terrible wrongdoing human rights violations civil rights violations and a victim of a pile up of crimes from the doctors office to the 1st Precinct One Police Plaza Internal Affairs --obstructing justice in with the city of New York cheating to win lying in court that I was not coerced when I was withholding my attackers letter threatening me with a second false cross complaint... I can tell you while we have this Twitter.... I can't stand social media and they have used gaslighting or people on their behalf have over eight years trying to convince me it's my fault... so how do you imagine I feel about this film? The media has been killing news on Epstein and Maxwell and my case. I refer people to the film "spotlight" when they ask me how could this go on including judges protecting all crimes and civil rights violations etc.

    This is a ridiculous price for a movie. I want to watch it but I'm not paying for that. Also, watch out for the bad reviews. Most of them are Spams from the Saudis.
