Paradise Now has truckloads of quotable lines -"Resistance can take many forms." "Life is full of surprises." "One day things will be better." - Suha, Said ""A life without dignity is worthless. Boring, like life." .Jamal - "A good education is important." "The world changes." - Said's Mommy. Director uses the camera to portray the characters facial expressions. This thriller is an emotional roller coaster and has themes of brotherhood, transformation, loyalty, political and religious overtones meshed with a romantic angle. Riveting and engaging from start to finish. Truly one of the best politically motivated pictures this reviewer has seen.

I saw a five minute clip of this and it looked interesting. Unfortunately, it failed to capture my interest when I saw the whole thing. The guys in this movie seemed cute, but that's not a good reason to see a terrorist movie. This was also nominated for Best Foreign Picture.

Paradise Now, A Great Movie

It’s always interesting seeing the psychology that leads people to violent actions, and Paradise now is no exception. Its message is complex, and its two head actors are actually pretty likable. It does a great job of supplying the message of “Terrorists are people too,” along with some other thought provoking less definite messages to go with it.

I Imagine Paradise Now had more punch in 2005 when it came out. The movie paints a definite picture of what goes through the head of someone who is willing to kill himself for any reason, not just terrorism, but I kind of feel like the emotional punch is pulled just a little bit due to the time and place.

That’s less of a criticism and more of a complement in the long run. This movie is a product of it’s time and a product of its place...
