About the Movie

The two of them unwittingly find themselves in the crosshairs of the War on Terror when surveillance footage of their secretive behavior is wildly misinterpreted in this smart indie comedy.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Despite its deficiencies, "Naz & Maalik" feels authentic, and Mr. Johnson and Mr. Cook bring their characters completely alive.
Rotten: Taken as a whole, "Naz & Maalik" is more of a curiosity piece than a magnet for any sort of discourse, let alone controversy.
Fresh: Naz & Maalik unfolds with a youthful vitality, bolstered by the charm of its lead actors.
Fresh: It's loose and rousing, fleet in its naturalistic portraiture.
I really wanted to like this movie, but I just could not deal with the fragmented narrative, trying-to-be-real cinematic approach. The actors are trying to do their best, but the story falls short and empty.
It was a great movie about black gay ❤️love ❤️and the struggle👏🏾👏🏾
