  • Arriving more than a few years after author Robert Bly popularized the concept of male self-exploration, this Canadian documentary seems a bit too touchy-feely even for the age of Oprah.

  • The tribe's unfailing politeness outside of activities specifically designed to arouse testosterone underlines the suspiciously benign nature of the entire endeavor.

  • Here's what Kohler isn't telling us: The kind of men who'd sign up for a trip like this aren't exactly the kind who'd have trouble opening up, and the kind of men who could afford a trip like this aren't exactly 'regular guys.'

  • Though it generates its share of unintentional giggles, François Kohler's documentary manages to take us to a seldom-visited place: the hidden corners of the straight male mind.

  • Desert Wind will be of interest to men -- and especially to women, who might learn much they didn't know about the opposite sex.

    February 15, 2006 | Rating: 3/4
  • We sense that the balance of the film's observations is being skewed by the camera's preference for the emotional exhibitionists in the bunch.
