Movie Info

On 25 June 2009 the news of Michael Jackson's death took the world by storm affecting many, especially a preacher whose nickname was "Jackson" during his school days. But, what does a preacher have in common with the King of Pop? More importantly, can he now go back to his normal life, or will his memories and relationships with his loved ones raise the most prominent question in his mind? Is he the Skeikh, Jackson, or both?

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (3)

Salama gently, effectively examines the role religion can play in one's life and outlook versus how a secular, more free-thinking existence may offer greater latitude but not always better or happier choices.

Dangles something fun, only to deliver something sober, neither angle well-realized enough to make a satisfying whole.

Salama ... uses playful juxtapositions and time-jumping plotlines to make serious points about compassion, generational friction and family dysfunction.

An admirably personal film that I truly enjoyed, and believed, as an accurate study for a familiar profile

Feb 25, 2018 | Rating: 8.5/10 | Full Review…

The arresting visuals at their most peculiar would be my biggest reason to recommend seeing Sheikh Jackson, but it's worth watching because it's a good coming-of-age story with a nuanced depiction of faith and a strong character arc at the centre.

While it has some offbeat charm, this innocuous but highly uneven Egyptian drama lacks the polished execution to match its heartfelt ambition.
