The first of his films is Mountain Men and Holy Wars, an intriguing study of Islamic separatists in Chechnya and Daghestan, starting with the story of Imam Shamil, a 19th-century leader who led a holy war against Russia, keeping that country at bay for nearly 40 years..."
"...The Holy City of the Wichitas rises above the grassy slopes of the mountains outside of Lawton, Okla., like a mirage. The entire village is made from stacked fieldstones so the structures blend into the treeless landscape...."

The filets had been cut away from the skeleton in such a way as to ensure that I encountered very few bones, and there was a mountain of rice with which to savor the remaining sauce when all the delicately fried fish was gone..."
"...Even without the bizarre twist of fate that made Jack Rebney a worshipful figure to millions of YouTube users –and we'll get to that in a minute –his has been a storied life. It's the kind that's easy to romanticize:those years in news, back when news carried significant gravitas; then a professional drift; and finally monkish isolation on a mountaintop in California, where he's settled for the past 15 years with his books, the authors of which – Aristophanes, Homer, and Hemingway – he speaks of as old friends...."
