Jamal Khashoggi: The dissident film renews the debate over the killing of the Saudi journalist


Jamal Khashoggi

The biography of the late Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi has returned to the forefront of the online debate in the Arab world again, due to the movie (The Dissident), which tells the details of his murder inside his country’s consulate in Istanbul more than two years ago.

In recent days, the film was shown on electronic platforms, which coincided with press reports during which its makers spoke about what they described as a “systematic campaign against the film.”

The film was shown in cinemas early last month, which was accompanied by the admiration of a number of critics and politicians in the United States in addition to receiving positive reviews on IMDb and Rotten Tomatoes to evaluate the artwork.

But in recent days, ratings site Rotten Tomatoes have plummeted, from 95 percent to 68 percent.
