This is a chilling documentary depicting how a fundamentalist militia quickly transforms a country into a military regime. Yet, it approaches the subject with a tragicomic tone, capturing unforgettable moments like when a group of Taliban soldiers tries out the exercise equipment at the abandoned CIA base, or when another soldier comes out of a unisex restroom.

Director Ibrahim Nash’at impressively delves into the everyday lives of Taliban soldiers, making Hollywoodgate one of the most remarkable documentaries in recent memory.
