    adam ali has smashed it out of the park with Baba, both as co-director and in central role Britannia, as has sam arbor. just absolutely brilliant down to every little touch, including the union jack nails and the line about manchester canal street that had the entire screening cracking up.

    a wonderful snapshot into the life of being arab, muslim, and queer. a great balance of the turbulence and the tender moments, visually STUNNING, and just does SO much (and does it SO well) in under 20 minutes.

    !!!!!! just break my heart a little bit why don't you !!


    for me, it was only nearing the end did i fully realise/acknowledge the level of sadness deep-rooted in this film, disguised under the layers of funny and awkward, and distracted from by it's sweet and it's secondhand-embarrassment-enducing moments. it felt comparable to the timing of benjamin's own realisation of his feelings and emotions and i enjoyed this. a bittersweet film that i appreciate for it's melancholia and final note of hopefulness.
