  • It's darkly amusing, sometimes uplifting... but deliberately dodges feel-good clichs.

  • [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.

  • a peculiarly involuted dynamic - Kronlund filming Shaheen filming his own story - from which we get a picture of man & myth, two aspects of a filmmaker who has always built his fictions upon the foundations - & ruins - of his nation's realities.

  • [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.
