      Kate Muir Times (UK) The film is a long interview, interspersed with news footage, but what makes it compelling is the smooth, wary intelligence of Begg as he answers for his actions -- and others' suspicions -- which resulted in him being tortured in prison. Rated: 3/5 Oct 10, 2016 Full Review Mike McCahill Guardian In this post-Chilcot moment, this principled, consistent testimony - coming as it does from deep within Islam - assumes a rare gravity and profound moral force. Rated: 4/5 Aug 11, 2016 Full Review Phil W. Bayles One Room With A View What makes The Confession so effective is that we as viewers are never explicitly asked to take Moazzam Begg's side; merely to listen to what he has to say. Rated: 4/5 Apr 1, 2019 Full Review Matt Looker Total Film Far from being a shock expos, the film sees Moazzam argue his beliefs with intelligence, compassion and valuable insight. Rated: 4/5 Jan 1, 2017 Full Review Paul Whitington Irish Independent In Ashish Ghadiali's interesting but profoundly un-cinematic documentary The Confession, we hear one man's very personal experiences during the war on terror. Rated: 3/5 Aug 12, 2016 Full Review Read all reviews
