SLAMDANCE 2013 Review:
THE SANDWICH NAZI


By Mark Wensel









The Sandwich Nazi
Directed by Lewis Bennett
Produced by Benjamin Taft, Calum MacLeod, Lewis Bennett 




Salam Kahil loves to talk about his penis.

He loves to tell stories about his life as a male escort. He loves talking about getting blowjobs in the back room of his deli. He's a Muslim who abhors violence and doesn't really believe in God. He also loves to give 100s of free sandwiches to homeless people.

Lewis Bennett's short documentary about Salam proves that you don't have to spend 90 minutes with someone to learn all about him. In only a few minutes, I wanted to know more about Salam. By the end of the ten minute film, I had seem a bit too much of the man, but I kind of wanted to hang out with him. He's funny, rude, crude and, best of all, he has a big heart.

Lewis and his crew are making a feature doc about Salam. I can only hope that it makes it to some festivals. I want to know more about this guy.
