Noble in intention but crude in execution, Parvez Sharma’s documentary about gay Muslim men and women chronicles a handful of outcasts and their personal ”jihads” (in Arabic, the word means ”struggle,” not ”holy war”). The accounts are powerful, but so many of the inter¬viewees’ faces are blurred to preserve their anonymity that it feels like you’re watching A Jihad for Love through a shower curtain. Still, it’s hard not to feel gutted when the daughter of a gay South African man tells him he should be stoned and thrown off a mountain, as the Koran instructs. B
