Top Customer Reviews
David B.'s black and white drawings are interesting and his use of multiple speech bubbles from a single caricature that wrap around other figures was an intriguing way of showing influence. For representing the Barbary Beys he made imaginative use of overly large white turbans as a sub-canvas alluding to their thoughts and action. There's also an opening segment which attempts to "mischievously" overlay the words of George Bush and Donald Rumsfeld into the legend of Gilgamesh. I'd give this a finer assessment of 3.6/5.
