Arabic movies

A Listmania! list by Amazon Customer (Roswell, NM)
The list author says: "With the growth of Arabic as a second language in the US, there will be interest in these movies. While there are a lot of Arabic movies available, students should know there is a big difference between the cinema of different countries. This list includes some that I think are interesting. Some Arabic movies suffer from poor acting or poor quality in the transfer to DVD. This list includes some that I found to be of better quality."
