behind taliban lines

Press Reaction

Dorothy Rabinowitz, The Wall Street Journal

"... Uniquely chilling. ... [An] intimate look at the lives and passions of these armies of the devout."


Mike Hale, The New York Times

"... presented with a studied neutrality but has the inevitable effect of humanizing the militants, which may be laudable to some American viewers while driving others around the bend. ... Emotions aside, however, Mr. Quraishi’s slice of rebel life is a fascinating document."


Alex Strachen, CanWest News Service

"... sober, matter-of-fact and mesmerizing to watch. ... Behind Taliban Lines is not at all what you might expect."
