    The clash of cultures isn't exactly groundbreaking but Qasim "Q" Basir's feature debut is told through the eyes of a young, black American Muslim, a perspective that has rarely been seen. show more

    Having created rich roles for his actors, Basir elicits from them inspired portrayals. Well-crafted in all aspects, Mooz-lum is not only rich in nuance, but also an engrossing entertainment made with skill and passion. show more

    Hope this moving little indie coming-of-age story makes it to a theater near you, because it's powerful. Evan Ross and Nia Long give GREAT performance as African American Muslims struggling to define their identities in the modern-day USA.
