[A] funny and affectionate documentary portrait of veteran Afghan movie mogul Salim Shaheen: actor, producer, director and creator of more than 100 features.
Salim Shaheen is known as 'the Ed Wood of Afghanistan', so this documentary is as eccentric as you might expect.
[An] amusing, at times rousing, tribute to a man called the Ed Wood of Afghanistan, someone whose larger-than-life presence makes him more suited to being in front of the camera than behind it.
It's an entertaining and eye-opening doc.
Even if the facts are fiction, you still get the sense of a man who is driven, at least in part, by an urge to bring some sort of happiness by shooting film rather than bullets.
Prince of Nothingwood is not only a portrait of a unique man, but of the importance of cinema too.
Prince of Nothingwood is a fascinating watch and an insightful look behind the curtain into a world many know very little about.
This is not just a crowd-tickling portrait of a fascinating, charismatic individual who cares more about cinema than safety. Shaheen and his small crew and cast don't just film in war zones, they also use real guns and bullets.
Shaheen's patriotism cannot be faulted and although we question what he would be like when not in front of the camera or a baying public, his belief that "we draw inspiration in cinema to help us in life" justly garners the royal adulation he deserves.
Although a tiny bit repetitive, Prince of Nothingwood thrives on the vibrancy of its personal portraits.
By turns amusing and harrowing, and with a compelling figure at its heart, The Prince Of Nothingwood proves how the show really can go on, no matter how terrible the circumstances.
