Say something to me in Arabic.
Say something to me in Bristol English first.

Take your shirt off.

Flying Blind is a thoroughly enjoyable, thought provoking, political essay on post 9/11 tensions generally shared in the West. The film does a wonderful job exposing the subtleties with regard to the nuances of prejudice often extended to persons of Arab descent. Add to that mix, the intelligent insertion of sexual tension and the film's star Helen McCrory. McCrory confidently exhibits her ability to carry the film and her presence(she is smashing!)and courage assure that you come away from this film thoroughly entertained and informed. This film should be seen by a wider audience. But then again, I'm somewhat prejudiced when reviewing Helen McCrory's work, as I'm usually fond of most everything she does.
