The beauty and ugliness of "Desert Riders" will haunt you. The boys and the world Sarin takes us into linger long after the final frame.

If Desert Riders doesn't make you enraged and move you to tears, you must be made out of stone.

Amid a cacophony of accusations and justifications, it's the children's broken limbs, ladderlike scars and disfigured, emaciated bodies that paradoxically hold the film together.

Powerful documentary about child-worker trafficking that provided underage jockeys for Arabian camel racing indicts not only the rich exploiters but the uneducated parents who unwittingly but not unwillingly made their children fodder.

None of the reliably irritating qualities of the social issue documentary gall quite so acutely as the tendency to venerate mere awareness.
