"Unpretty" truths from the director of "SLAM".
7 April 2001 | by (Arlington, VA.) – See all my reviews

Just so that we cover this from jump, I really started to get annoyed at the first review offered up here. But everyone has the right to their own say-so, and I don't give much credibility to an assinine review like that one, especially when its author decides to remain "anonymous."

Where SLAM offered some kind of hope at its conclusion, we can't forget that it was a MOVIE, not real life, and the grittiness that was so well displayed in that film had to come from somewhere. Now Levin shows you where and why, and more importantly, that the tale can't be told too many times, so that it will be rendered less urgent or unimportant.

I fear that docs like this one bring a message that still falls on deaf ears and blind eyes, when it comes to getting through to the people who have the power and the resources to really do something about this case of modern-day genocide. But just like with most of history's cases of injustice, it will take something along the lines of a major catastrophe before anybody really begins to give a damn.
