  1. davy's rating of the film Habibi

    Heavy-handed with clunky, preachy writing and unbelievable characters. The character of Layla was fairly fully realized but Qays was not. Difficult to get invested in their love when we see no reason to root for them. On top of it the acting was pretty stiff. I really wanted to see a story where the Israeli-Palestine conflict served as a backdrop to inform tone. Instead it took over the narrative and overshadowed it.
