Hilarious documentary on idiots
4 July 2004 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I saw this film about 10 years ago, in a theatre in Toronto. As I recall, it was hilarious. Broomfield goes about interviewing Eugene Terreblanche, leader of a white supremacist movement that existed in South Africa just before the end of apartheid. He also interviews various individuals who make up Terreblanche's entourage. We see "the leader's" hatred and racial nationalism exposed in the raw. Unfortunately, as I recall, Broomfield doesn't go as far as he could of in explaining Terreblanche's fears (some of which may have manifested themselves through the post-apartheid's soaring crime rates since the film was made). He's having too much fun making fun of the guy - or rather, letting the man and his friends embarrass themselves each time they open their mouths.

One scene that sticks in my head is of two supremacists trying to tell a racist joke making fun of blacks. They're so stupid that the joke doesn't work at all - instead I was doubled over laughing at them.

Over all, a very entertaining 'expose' of a fool and his friends - though perhaps missing some substance in terms of context. Then again, it's been 10 years.... I wonder what Terreblanche is up to these days?
