Quotes
“A gently subversive metaphor for the current state of the country and while it wears its heart well and truly on its filmic sleeve its strong performances and unusual backdrop set it apart from other recent Egyptian film output.” Mark Adams - Screen Daily

“With an edgy, modern style, Nadine Khan offers a pleasurably unexpected view of Egyptian society as a closed circuit world.” Deborah Young - The Hollywood Reporter

“Aptly billed as a "social fantasy," Nadine Khan's debut, "Chaos, Disorder," reps an intriguing vision of a community cut off from the outside world and controlled via irregular truckloads of necessities.” Jay Weissberg - Variety
