Boucherie Halal – 7

There is a story, but mainly this is a feature-length indictment of Muslim culture and, indirectly, the peril of non-assimilation, in this case into Canadian society. Wives are abused, treated as chattel, and sons are in thrall to hard-line parents. The “spiritual leader” ruins everyone around him and is finally arrested, symbolically, for sending money to the Taliban. I wonder if director Babek Aliassar is complaining, or warning fellow Muslims. In either case, the message seems clear.
