I am not familiar with the film but frankly the vast majority of films about
the Middle East are "distorted" one way or the other. Doubt you would have
any films on this subject if they had to pass a objectivity test. Obviously
the film should have some overall merit to be in a collection but I would
not count on objectivity.
