But the point is not representation for its own sake. The movie ends on the downbeat, but you're left with a feeling of empathy that is, in its way, exhilarating. Dockendorf isn't black, but he wrote the script based on interviews with gay, African-American Muslims, and the movie has a layered, documentary-like texture. I don't need to tell you that traditional Muslims condemn homosexuality, but Naz and Maalik steal kisses in alleys when they can. Their Brooklyn is a cauldron — full of ranters, homeless people, the poor and the affluent side by side. All these disparate cultures are difficult to reconcile, which adds to the excitement, the unpredictability of life, but also the jitteriness. The first thing you'll notice is that while Naz and Maalik have stable homes, they live much of their lives on the streets of Brooklyn.
