“I wasn’t anti-state; the state was anti-me.” So states Moazzam Begg – the controversial British Pakistani detained at Bagram and Guantanamo in the early noughties – in this revealing, often shocking documentary. Built around a candid interview with Begg in which he makes a compelling case for his innocence – explaining his actions and sympathies were born of curiosity and resistance to Western media – the film provides a fascinatingly personal, first-hand insight into over a decade of escalating tensions in the Middle East. Echoing the style of interview docs The Fog Of War and The Fear Of 13, the film’s intimate format provides a breadth of psychological insight into this complex, often contradictory figure, a victim of unprecedented state violence who still professes a degree of support for Islamic jihad.
