      Jordan Hoffman Times of Israel "Junction 48" is something worth checking out - particularly if you are a fan of Arabic hip-hop, which, now that I've seen this movie, I guess I am. Feb 1, 2018 Full Review Ben Kenigsberg New York Times Does for the Israeli city of Lod what "8 Mile" aimed to do for the suburbs of Detroit. Mar 2, 2017 Full Review Michael Rechtshaffen Los Angeles Times An immersive fictionalized portrait of an aspiring rapper struggling to find his voice amid the constant din of long-festering Arab-Israeli tensions. Mar 2, 2017 Full Review Uri Klein Haaretz Junction 48 demands that we allow ourselves to be swept into it...those obstacles are worth overcoming; if you do, you get a chance to experience a work whose unique way of observing current Israeli reality is what gives it validity. Jan 10, 2018 Full Review Hannah Brown Jerusalem Post The charm of the young cast, especially Nafar and Qupty, is the film's strength. When they perform, separately or together, the movie soars. Feb 28, 2017 Full Review Lauren Humphries-Brooks We Got This Covered Junction 48 celebrates music as a force for expression and cultural fusion, as Kareem and his friends praise sexuality, love, and the realities of their lives in Lyd as the most profoundly political statements they can make. Rated: 4.5/5 Feb 28, 2017 Full Review Read all reviews
