‘Jihad Rehab' Takes Us Inside a Rehab Center for Islamic Terrorists
Sundance Film FestivalThe fifth of Alcoholics Anonymous' 12 steps is to admit "to God, to ourselves, and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs"—the reason being that honest confrontation of past misdeeds and mistakes is central to any process of recovery. That sort of open acknowledgment, however, is largely absent from the work carried out by the Mohammed bin Nayef Counseling and Care Center, a Saudi Arabian treatment facility that was founded by its namesake to help rehabilitate Islamic terrorists. Certainly, no one profiled by Jihad Rehab (premiering Jan. 22 at the Sundance Film Festival) seems interested in truly confessing their jihadist crimes to the camera, and that willful omission is a pressing problem throughout Meg Smaker's documentary, which is undermined by a frequent desire to buy into its subjects narratives and, in doing so, to let them craft their own self-serving self-portraits.

Her first guest of the night was Aidy Bryant's Ted Cruz, who began by explaining, "My beard is like January 6th. Shocking at first, but sadly it's been normalized." From there, he followed up his humiliating appearance on Tucker Carlson's show by sending a message directly to Trump. "Donald, if you're watching, I love you, baby," he said. "You are the king. Honestly, hit me."
