It takes a brave man to make Lebanon's first gay-themed commercial feature.
Variety Review June 1, 2011 by Jay Weissberg: It takes a brave man to make Lebanon's first gay-themed commercial feature. "Out Loud," helmer Samer Daboul and his cast are to be commended for their conviction and the palpable camaraderie on screen. Daboul's script needs greater discipline, but the characters, consisting of six friends, gay and straight, wanting to forge a new fellowship, have a winsome appeal. Pic's strength comes from the way Daboul presents this alternate "menage" as a loving group unconstrained by sanctimonious conditioning; they're hardly the only six like this in Lebanon, but the point "Out Loud" makes is that the fanaticism of a vocal, closed-minded mob is stifling a new generation whose values aren't dictated from a bully pulpit. The gay story is part and parcel with the others, not overwhelming the narrative, although it remains a crucial element.
