While its situations are more complex and less ham-fisted than those in many inspirational stories of reaffirmed faith, Mooz-lum...suffers from one-note characterizations.

Sensitive performances smooth out the dramatic rough spots of this well-intentioned, racially-charged drama.

A potent feature debut for writer-director Qasim Basir, "Mooz-lum" attacks Islamist extremism while offering audiences a rare and illuminating depiction of life as a Muslim in America.

There's an undeniable potency to the blunt-instrument melodrama of Mooz-lum.

Solemn, unsubtle, and terminally self-conscious.

Poignant, relevant, and often quite moving in its characterizations.

The film is worth seeing simply because of the phenomenal acting by the ensemble and a plot that will generate debate and interest once audience members leave the theater.

I suspect the Muslim narratives of 9/11 will soon grow into its own genre, and this film is a very good start.

A poignant, cinematic memoir of growing up Muslim in America from the perspective of an anguished soul who just wanted to enjoy a normal childhood.

Audience Reviews for Mooz-lum

What could have been a solid film about family and community, instead just seemed like one cliche after another. Ultimately, there's too much going on, and because we don't spend time dwelling with the characters, the resolutions of the conflicts come off as too quick, too simple, too preachy, and too corny.

So, this what it is like to be a devout Muslim back in 2001 shortly and after.the World Trade Center collapsed at the hands of the Muslim terrorists. What an awesome dramatic movie played by Nia Long, Roger Guenveur Smith.as.the estranged Muslim parents.of Evan Ross.and Summer Bishil. As a child being raised by an extremely devout Muslim father..Taariq goes into college as confused as ever because of his new social surroundings. The harder he tries to getaway from the surreal and secretly strict upbringing...the harder it became to cope with his attempt to give up on his religious foundation. When tragedy strikes..it is then the he must rely on the same foundation to keep him sane from the painted is trying to leave. Very powerful all around performances. See this it will have you thinking in more ways than one.
