Not Quite the Taliban2008

  • 3.5
The story of one man’s frustration with his generation of "modern" Arabs who appear Western but are more conservative than the traditional Arabs. While there are many films about hypocrisy in the Middle East made by Western filmmakers, NOT QUITE THE TALIBAN is the first to be made by an Arab who’s put himself on the line by speaking up about the taboos, such as his homosexuality.

not what I quite expected, but interesting cultural expose

Limited character development.

A brave document
