With the Withdraw of American Forces and Allies from Afghanistan, ROCK THE KASBAH takes on an almost ghostly premonitions of Bad Things to Come. It’s not the Movie! It’s a good Movie and it’s Stout Stance against Females is sharply put in our Faces. The Taliban will execute at least 100,000 women in the 1st 365 days after We Leave. They will once again be less than an animal.
Sadly, all Rights for Women there will erode back into Extreme Islamic Beliefs and Practices. And bear the End with Joy of this Movie, but cry for the Widow’s Child who surely will Die!
I find it sad, so sad to see a moment of Joy from this Movie and now, the opposite of Love will be crawling out of the Hills and caves and mountains. It’s a shame. A real shame…the Movie-
While visiting Kabul, Afghanistan, washed-up music manager Richie Lanz (Bill Murray) gets dumped by his last client. His luck changes when he meets Salima Khan (Leem Lubany), a Pashtun teenager with a beautiful voice who dreams of becoming the first female to compete on the television show “Afghan Star.” With help from a savvy hooker (Kate Hudson), two war profiteers and a trigger-happy mercenary (Bruce Willis), Richie embarks on a mission to make sure his new protégée gets discovered.
I hope you will watch and share this Movie now showing on NETFLIX.
But hauntingly, the Present RUN FROM AFGHANISTAN reminds me so much of Our leaving Vietnam. And those then killed and put in Re-Education Camps for helping Americans.
