This is one of those movies that if you don't get emo over it, you're not feeling it
It may be "groundbreaking" because it has a Muslim dominatrix, and? That's the one-trick pony for this entire thing. It has a Muslim dominatrix. Honestly, that's it. Because it's too difficult for the Muslim faith to understand sexuality in any context outside of itself and like most religions will condemn and harm what it never will understand, let's make a movie to make sure that the religion is tweaked that little bit more. It's an art movie, it's disjointed, has very little in terms of plot, doesn't really say much other than to constantly show shock images after shock images probably just to get a rise out of the fundamentalists. And? That's it folks. It just really isn't that good a movie outside of the shock factor. And, if you're not a devout Muslim, it won't shock you. If you are a devout Muslim, you're only watching it to be outraged.
