Can you recommend any Arab movies?

In my Cultural Diversity class, Muslim Americans is my thesis topic. I am expanding my knowledge of present, as well as past. I have watched several movies on Islam, Judaism, and Arab cultures. Does anyone have any suggestions of movies I can get access to in the USA? Preferably for free. I'm on a student budget. Maybe on Netflix, or Hulu, or PFTV.

    hi!
    the 1st movie that i would suggest is "الرسالـة The Message" (1974). you can find both the original version and a dubbed one Youtube:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2n04FW2HaGo (the original version in Arabic)
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C8zvsIAtCRc (the dubbed version)

    It's obvious tha movies are not a reliable source of information, but they can reach a wider audience than other sources.

    feel free to contact me if you need other suggestions.
