This is the best kind of documentary; one that rather than take a preachy stand on either side of the issue, shows you the point-of-view from both sides and lets you make your own judgment call. Actions always speak louder than words, though the participants here get to do a lot of talking, and their statements basically say it all. The fact that these extremists are more intelligent than one would expect, makes their fervent belief in their cause, and their willingness to do whatever is necessary to advance that agenda, that much more chilling. Perhaps the point best made by this doc is that if more talking were done, there might be a way to implement a better alternative to bombs, guns, assassinations and extra security at women's health clinics. At least in the cases of those who are willing to explore such possibilities. As for those whose fervor has passed from pathology into absolute dementia, that's a subject for a whole other documentary, one that would probably make a fitting sequel to this.
