REVIEW: 'The Square' ★★★★
"The Square" bears witness to history in an articulate, thoughtful and intensely dramatic way. A compelling inside look at the cascading series of revolutions and counterrevolutions that have shaken Egypt since the beginning of 2011, it wouldn't exist except for the passion and determination of filmmaker Jehane Noujaim. Her film was nominated for an Oscar Thursday in the best documentary feature category.
