    Having created rich roles for his actors, Basir elicits from them inspired portrayals. Well-crafted in all aspects, Mooz-lum is not only rich in nuance, but also an engrossing entertainment made with skill and passion.

    Evan Ross impresses with an implosive performance as Tariq Mahdi, a moody young African-American.

    The clash of cultures isn't exactly groundbreaking but Qasim "Q" Basir's feature debut is told through the eyes of a young, black American Muslim, a perspective that has rarely been seen.

    Solemn, unsubtle, and terminally self-conscious.

    I didn't find this heartwarming at all but, I'm not racist but, I just don't like this. I just don't, I don't really see the point. People "demanded" it? Is it the next Paranormal Activity? No. It just seems like it. I give it a 1 just because the title is annoying to me. Expand
