At a time when films about terrorism are rare and considered in poor taste by some, Jubin Joseph delivers a gutsy and revealing look into the psyche of a terrorist about to sacrifice his life for Allah and the promise of virgins awaiting him in heaven. The acting performances by, Tarik Ali, Nasim Pedrad, and Fred Toma, are thoughtfully executed. The set, locations and costuming are all convincingly authentic. For director Jubin Joseph, this first 35mm film is quite an admirable success. The cinematography and lighting was very well done. I was disappointed with some of the special effects and ambient sound quality in the version I saw. Perhaps, this has been or will be corrected in a future release. I look forward to more of Joseph's work.
