Storyline

This feature documentary takes the audience on a disturbing journey deep into a culture that few can comprehend -- that of suicide bombers. Filmmaker Pierre Rehov examines the phenomenon of suicide bombers through rare and never-before-seen interviews with actual family members of terrorists, the prisoners whose bombing attempts have been thwarted, and exclusive footage of a terror bomber as he prepares for mission! This film provides a message of urgency for increasing our understanding of the psychopathological dynamics of these terrorist bombers. We finally gain insight to how these human bombs "tick".

Often Disturbing
28 March 2007 | by (Portugal) – See all my reviews

These days I expect a documentary to be precise in the subject it pretends to approach and mostly, not boring.

"Suicide Killers" has a good theme. Terrorism by suicide bombers is a "trend" this days and everyone seems to be expecting the next news flash about it.

A first person view of the whole psychological side of this type of warfare, the motivations for such acts has to exist.

Both politics and religion are the two subjects used in the process of explaining to the viewer what makes a suicide bomber tick. Being a martyr seems to be a good thing and every family accepts very well that they're offspring kills other people in the name of Allah becoming some kind of hero who goes to heaven.

Mostly the reasons for such acts are based in matters which western society takes for granted such as the right to have sex (without offending Allah) or marry someone. Normal things that Islam society denies so many times and so many people need. People who live in poverty and among war conflicts that never seem to cease. No hope, nothing to really live for but something to die for as it seems... An oppression based on some old premises written long time ago and defy all logic.

Anyway. Overall it's always nice to learn something about the subject but it lacks something. It lacks "in your face" graphic content for example. In my opinion this kind of documentary has to really make a point about something as bad as this. I liked the fact that most people interviewed are actually candidates to martyr status which delivers a good dosage of realism and veridical content but in the end I could have felt more the drama of the whole situation. We get to see some blood and few guts but really wanted to feel bad about it all and I can't say I did.

6/10
