Press

"Those who got a kick out of watching the Ram's faux rivalry with the Ayatollah in The Wrestler are hereby advised--nay, ordered--to check out Benjamin Kegan's documentary about Adeel Alam, a devout Muslim-American pro wrestler who inhabits the role of a terrorist in the ring. In Kegan's hands, what might have been an exercise in snark becomes, instead, an incisive look at how Alam navigates his character through the weird make-believe world of pro wrestling in a post-9/11 America."
-Bilge Ebiri, New York Magazine
