strange to here the other side
8 February 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Some would say that this film is controversial, it has views which are not mainstream, but i didn't see or hear anything controversial. I think people use the term controversial to either get people to not trust it, it isn't a normal view. What happens in this film is the blinding logic isn't popular but it should be popular and you realize something else, the degree to which only one opinion rotates around and around in Western society. and how we get presented with choices from the same coin. this is the context in which our freedom of speech is framed. The film shows the madness behind multi-cultural where we as minority people are almost like flavors, chocolate white people but that is the limits of how much we are accepted and to go beyond the boundaries set by those controlling society is to be maybe seen as a threat. And they have so many labels for those that define themselves against the grain. What i gained most from this film is how inescapable it is to escape medias perception. Even if you are aware you absorb so much even without knowing. I am happy i saw this film because it is like a repellant to that because i can re-frame the lies within a new window and have a different take on world events.
