Sorry, This is not a Saudi Film
20 May 2018 | by my-zSee all my reviews

First, I do not have anything against the director or the crew but I am only stating a fact and any Arabic speaker who is familiar with the Saudi culture and not ideologically influenced will know what I am about to say is true. This films is written from a Western perspective. It is not even popular in Saudi, in fact, it is heavily criticized. I understand why the director favored the Western viewer over the Saudi viewer. it is because he wants awards and popularity in the West. Whether you like it or not, this film is not a Saudi film. There are lot of Saudi films that are critically acclaimed in Saudi . YouTube is one place to check them where you can see the positive reviews and likes. If this film was uploaded on YouTube and became available among the rest of Saudis, there will be more dislikes.
