How to make a big lie work.
26 September 2005 | by (San Jose, CA.) – See all my reviews

This movie shows what it takes to trick a country into going to war. The mindset of those carrying out the operation is shown. This feels almost like a documentary. Lots of closeups that foreshadow the techniques of Sergio Leone. At times it moves quite fast and conveys the speed of the whole operation. At one time it moves at a pace to give the feeling of the waiting and tension that the operation itself produces. This movie would be perfect to see with DOWNFALL. The beginning and the end of the second world war,perfect bookends to all of the movies depicting World War II. This movie teaches lessons that are as full of meaning for today and the world situation.
