Movie Recommendations, Muslim Theme

Please see How to Meet Muslims: a (Cinematic) Primer over at Religion Dispatches.

Short of putting Muslims on buses and driving them around the country to be gawked at, talked to, and interacted with, what more can be done?

The next best thing to a living, breathing Muslim is an approximation of one. That is, the silver screen (had you said robots, I’d counter: Muslims will be the last people on Earth to come up with robots). Why not? Movies explore the lives and experiences of Muslims in a format that can be watched as easily at home as on the train (that’s what iPads are for).

He recommends several movies. I just added one to my Netflix queue. Enjoy.
