Proof right in plain sight. Tremendous film
1 April 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Rape of the Soul was well worth my time, but it's not for kids though. I can see why this film has caused so much controversy. Yet most negatives have never seen the film, but still discuss it, and never mention the pictures, which are 100% proof positive. I've always waited until I could see the film for myself, as a judge in a professional sense it is imperative.

Undoubtedly, the director must be a hated man by the perpetrators, but you can't fault him, as he ran into some horrible scandals that only he knew, and he actually did something about it, while cover-ups tried to stop him.

What I found most amazing besides the imagery, which is clearly evident, (but you can't absorb it consciously unless it is pointed out to you), is that Michael A. Calace was an expert at the very subject matter that he discovered in the scandals, but was never looking for it in the first place. He backed into all of this while developing another movie called "Intimate Fear." Next to my bench, expert witnesses are always featured, but to have just happen upon a situation is simply a matter of fate. The other experts, such as Dr. Wilson Bryan Key and Dr. Judith Reisman, Dr. Monteith and Dr. Oster shine as well. Highly credible experts all.

Many famous artists are in the film as well as new artists who have been exposed, yielded impressive results. Calace and his fellow experts know their business.
