The Gate Cinema


Noir | Thriller | Historical | Political | Masculinity 

Set in the lead up to the Egyptian revolution of 2011, police commander Noredin is tasked with investigating the murder of a singer in a hotel. The suspect is a high profile property developer with close ties to the president. With its allusions to Chinatown (1974) and LA Confidential (1997), The Nile Hilton Incident is a distinctive addition to the film noir canon. Essaying a level of cynicism similar to the post Kennedy/Nixon era of American cinema Saleh excels in the depiction of a world that is unabashedly venal.
