He's not a good propagandist., 15 January 2004
Author: clarkca

This pseudo documentary is just passable, but not that interesting. The people interviewed do have a point of view and it is Leftist, but they simply are not convincing, compelling, or even entertaining.

One of the most damning statements the film included was the fact that very few had died to prevent a subjugation of a country's freedom; far fewer than ever in history. Actually, all of the students statements were more balanced than the protagonists' and the most honest part of the film.

It's a biased documentary, but there is some interesting historical footage that helps flesh out the conditions of the time.
