      Panos Kotzathanasis Asian Movie Pulse At 84 minutes, “Dirty Difficult Dangerous” is an economic, very intelligent, very realistic film that manages to present all its comments through a rather rewarding combination of seriousness and humor. Rated: 7.5 Jan 4, 2023 Full Review Allan Hunter Screen International Star-crossed lovers confront mounting obstacles to their happiness in Wissam Charaf’s slight but intermittently charming Dirty Difficult Dangerous. Sep 29, 2022 Full Review Joseph Fahim Middle East Eye Dirty is a strange beast: a melodrama conceived as a deadpan comedy, peppered with social commentary. Despite the palpable passion on display, the film doesn’t succeed on any of those fronts Sep 6, 2022 Full Review Nicholas Bell IONCINEMA.com In the somewhat slight narrative, Charaf’s narrative energy sometimes feels sabotaged by the metaphorical leanings, which takes the shape of an afterthought, eclipsed by the more compelling and familiar subplot. Rated: 2.5/5 Aug 31, 2022 Full Review Read all reviews
