  • Ardhi Syaifuddin's rating of the film Black Gold

    It's nice to see Tahar Rahim back in lead role after his breakthrough performance in A Prophet. The grand scale of desert epic-ness brought a Lawrence of Arabia nostalgia. Considering it is backed by the Qatar Film Fund, a sense of an ulterior motive behind the film making cannot be avoidable. recommended for anyone interested in the subject of oil politics/ love-hate relationship between Mid East & the west.
