Kay Kay Menon,

I'm going to be bold and say that this is one of the most enlightening films I have seen in a very long time. Not only is it a phenomenal depiction of Muslim-American life, but it also presents an informative insight to the terrorist ideology that very few Americans understand. Many may think that a movie dealing with terrorism is meant to stir up controversy and dispute. I did not find this movie to be politically-charged nor offensive. It is purely the story of a man struggling with both the anger imposed on him by American intelligence and the happiness he once knew with his close friends. Regardless of your personal beliefs based on religion, terrorism, the war, etc each and every person who lives in America has something to gain through thought and reflection after seeing this movie.
