The Dissident is a true story. It’s a really good documentary about Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi. It’s sad what this guy went through and that he lost his life all because he voiced his opinion but of course we are talking about Saudi Arabia and their way of life is a lot different than ours here. This poor man who spoke his opinion of what happened ended up costing him his life. I do recommend you see the movie even if you don’t know the story. It will explain it to you as you see it. This is a clever three and a half star movie. Running time is 1 hour and 59 minutes.
