excellent movie
9 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I am happy that System of Down had a courage to make this movie. I watched the movie, it was excellent. The movie deserves 10 out of 10. The low rating on this website is just a result of Turkish propaganda, that wants to hide the truth and deny the genocide... The movie clearly shows how turks try to kill all the attempts of recognition of the genocide. However the truth is not possible to hide and as a Turkish writer (who recently got a Noble Prize for speaking about Armenian genocide) said instead of denying the truth Turkey will get more respect if it recognizes the genocide. More and more countries are declaring the recognition of the Armenian genocide. Unfortunately my country, the US hasn't declare that yet motivated by political reasons (it's more convenient to have a big country like Turkey as a political partner as a small Armenia which does not have a political power). Nevertheless, my state California has recognized the fact of genocide...
