Long Time Coming for Valentino's Ghost - NYT Critics' Pick

You may not agree with every observation in Michael Singh’s documentary “Valentino’s Ghost.” But this engrossing examination of American perceptions of Arabs and the Arab world gets you thinking...Mr. Singh’s film scrutinizes the intersection of geopolitics (specifically Western incursions into the Middle East) and Hollywood imagery (which has often reflected Western interests in the region). Viewers are invited to consider history from the Arab perspective, a rare stance in the United States, and Western entertainment from the same angle. via ANDY WEBSTER
