"As drama, The Insult is only about halfway convincing, but as a rhetorical intervention against Lebanon's legacy of division it has merit."
Adam Nayman - CINEMA SCOPE

"How Joelle Touma's script progresses is heavy-handed in its desire to augment the tensions and provide justifications, but it's still powerful nonetheless."
Jared Mobarak - THE FILM STAGE

"Working its way through courtroom arguments, the movie never transcends the main tension established early on, but Doueiri does a competent job of exploring the sources of anger on both sides without valorizing either of them."
Eric Kohn - INDIEWIRE
