Shortly after landing a job, Terry Allen is laid off, starts looking for another circa post September 11, 2001 media frenzy and paranoia with President George W. Bush stating that grief has turned to anger, anger to resolution, and that there are thousands of terrorists in over 60 countries ready to strike. With increasing reports of identity theft, the involvement of wealthy & educated foreigners in terrorist activities, Terry starts suspecting his new neighbor, a middle-easterner, who he stereotypes as 'raghead', 'camel jockey', and 'sand nigger'. His wife, Marla, does not share in his bigotry, but he believes that she has turned her attention from rock-stars to Jihadists. While looking for employment, as well as a loan to purchase a house, he also contacts the Federal Bureau of Investigation as he feels he has sufficient evidence that his new neighbor is structuring money, experimenting with chemicals, and associating with other middle-easterners for devious reasons.

Saw this at the Tribeca Festival today and loved it. To be honest, it started out pretty slowly but then, out of nowhere, it turns into this sweaty ride. I know it's supposed to be making a political statement and everything but aside from that, it's just good movie-going (once it kicks in anyway).
Peter Krause gives it! And Khaled Abol Naga (the actor playing the maybe or maybe not terrorist) was a really good match for Krause's insaneness.
I'm a big fan of not being able to guess the ending and this movie didn't disappoint. Anyway, if you're in New York, check this one out before the festival's over if you can.
