There's a line: Who wrote this crap?
Mike Mosallam did! Unfortunately. A feature - painfully extracted and elongated from a short - that really ought not to have been extracted nor elongated..
This is a paint-by-numbers, preachy, instructional, badly acted, go-to film...if you are a gay muslim man living in West Hollywood!
Some people have [and will] describe this film as incredibly [we say, erroneously] woke. Good grief...wake up...all those 10 star reviews [on IMDb] are utterly ridiculous. Two gay men...who don't jump into bed straight away...incredulous...but, hey, that's the new gay woke! I wanna know you before I get on your c*&k! Yeah, right!
Look, it's simple...religion despises poofs and dykes [bisexuals, ha! And, trans don't even get a mention in the bible, koran et al.]. When will every delusional 'religious' LG[BT] person accept this commonly known fact?!?
There is a semi-intelligent discussion [near the end]...which, sadly, goes nowhere...and is, wholly, negated by a white [incomprehensible] woke perspective! Eeew!
Obviously, there is the obligatory blaming of colonisation [and, there's the blaming of god, to a lesser extent]...blame whoever/whatever for the woes and scandalous failures of this world [all religions ARE to blame, with their hatefulness, intolerance and blatant homophobia]...this ridiculous film is an out-and-out advertorial for 'how-to-be-good-gay' islamist! Ridiculous...considering the current climate! Homosexuality should not/cannot be homogenised!
As for the last 10 minutes...well, it just made us heave!
This is a pastiche of gay life. This is bamboozling [heteronormative] religious idealism coupled with unrepentant non-realism...all packaged and tied up without a ribbon of integrity nor intelligence.
