it's not rocket science
8 April 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

A poor use of excellent material. All the elements were there - a rocket science and space project in Lebanon in the 1960s, its abandonment, Middle East politics, the ethnic identity of the scientists, their age, the existence of film and photo archives, the reminiscences of the main protagonists, Beirut today - but they were all thrown in at once near the start, so that the second half of the film was, so to speak, running on empty. There was no suspense, and the really surprising things that the film makers had unearthed were not given the space to breathe. They also seem to have had a big budget but made little use of it. The recurring theme - why has this episode been forgotten in Lebanon? - was never addressed adequately.
