24 November 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Although beautifully shot, given the components of such pure destruction and deceit it would have been very easy for this film to have just been just another tale of human and governmental failing and the individual casualties that are a result of such. Instead we find the subtle but brilliant parallels Thavi brings to the film, in his capacity as the film editor as well as the editing he has personally employed in his life, that places The Betrayal so far above its peers.

The film, mirroring his life, exposes all of the devastating elements experienced and witnesses in his life yet it is his skill at editing that has allow these action to be exposed and acknowledged while not allowing them to dictate the soul of either the film or his life. Instead you will find, by design, a film and a person of peace and beauty, showing us that with proper editing, we like Thavi have the ability to create peace…inner peace and products of peace.
