Critic Reviews for Burning Sands
Burning Sands is a well made, thought provoking film filled with subtleties and a compelling story that, like any good film, leaves us with questions, and challenges us to think about the repercussions of our actions.
Burning Sands is a riveting assessment of freedom, compassion and what it means to think critically about the circumstances you may find yourself in.
You definitely come away from the experience with very mixed feelings about what you've seen and how it was presented, which feels just about right for a story like this one.
There's a lingering pain as the credits roll, a reminder of the misconception that to be a real man, one must endure physical and mental pain inflicted by other men, similarly misunderstanding true masculinity.
Viewed as a cautionary tale about the dangers of hazing, Burning Sands dutifully does its job. As hard-hitting sociopolitical commentary, it falls short.
