Focused on the world of wealthy Qatari sheikhs with a passion for amateur falconry, 'The Challenge' combines cinematic beauty with rare access and trailblazing form. Here, the opulence of Qatar is on full display, as the men race SUVs up and down sand dunes, fly their prized falcons around on private jets, and take their pet cheetahs out for desert spins in their souped-up Ferraris.Written by
Regardless how I might personally feel about over consumption, hedonism, and the glory of obsessive compulsive spending...that is meaningless self imposed opinion. As a documentary the film is well executed, well-authored and exposes the unconscious pleasures in exotic pets. I wish that had been some history to contextulise the facination with falcons. Needless it is a well produced well told story.
