As the Syrian conflict grinds into its fourth year with still no end in sight, the first wave of in-depth documentaries on the war is reaching Western shores. A Sundance hit, ‘Return to Homs’ is a punchy profile of the siege of Homs that approaches the local population by way of charismatic would-be footballer Basset. Shot over two years by Syrian filmmaker Talal Derki, this is the most intimate piece of reportage on the war that you’re likely to see anytime soon.
