WACO will be the first narrative feature film to explore the events of the ATF raid on Mt. Carmel, Texas, the 51-day siege that followed, and the devastating compound fire that resulted in the deaths of 81 civilians.
Never let the truth get in the way of a good story.
There is no denying that Tim Daly's performance is stunning. But, it would seem that he was the only person working on this cartoonish debacle who did any research.
Now, what we have here is a question of motive. Why did they make this film without any access to the facts? (After all, the film was in post production before the siege was over) Were they making art? No. Were they documenting the truth? No. They didn't know what the truth was at that time. Were they trying the save the ATF from budget cutting and possible disbandment? I'll put my vote on yes.
This is a dangerous piece of propaganda, which holds murderers up as heroes, and displays people who are defending themselves as psychos.
Oh, and where was the scene where the FBI agents opened fire on the women and children who were hiding in the kitchen area to protect themselves from the CS gas? In fact, where was the CS gas?
