Wingrave (2007) is billed as the first English-language feature from Egypt (i.e., made by actual Egyptians, not a Hollywood production company that flies in all of its own equipment and actors and hires some locals to haul water). I probably shouldn’t make judgments about an entire hypothetical industry from this one entry, but my reaction can probably be summarized thusly:

“Egypt. It sure ain’t no Turkey.”
