Did You Know?


[talking about the ethics of killing a head of state]
Rachel: I think we *should* look into the possibility of using a sniper. You know there's rumour that in 1938 the British attaché in Berlin suggested that.
L/BX: Why wasn't it taken up?
Rachel: You can't just kill someone because of what they might do in the future. Assassination's hard to justify when you're not at war - it's generally called "murder".

Effective but an oddity
24 September 2011 | by (London) – See all my reviews

What hits you first and foremost in a documentary found on the Yesterday channel (akin to any History channel) is the style of this doc. The constant switching between dramatisation and reality is not something you see often, especially not when the dramatisation is an almost film noire type style. Add to that a somewhat fancy "Parker Lewis Can't Lose" shooting style and a full sequence of events that fools viewers into thinking they are watching something that had really happened (only to be told at the end of it that all of that never occurred) and have you have one odd documentary. It seems it is about what could have been a sensational discovery (the knowledge of these scheme was unknown until 1994!) yet does not really deliver anything sensational. Therefore it is too long and an hour on this topic would do. I enjoyed nevertheless and I think director Lovering loved directing this one too...
