Dishonest Agit-prop
9 January 2009 | by (Taipei) – See all my reviews

This film is maliciously counter-factual about recent political events in Taiwan. To avoid the obvious legal responsibility of slander and libel, it merely changes peoples's names like a _roman à clef_ while inventing the usual thriller / romance subplot in imitation of Hollywood's treatment of so-called "history". Problem is that in doing so it obliterates and suppresses all of the most relevant facts, while accepting the most idiotic conspiracy theories which multiple investigations from multiple sources have already discredited. The result is an inept pro-KMT "Blue Party" wet dream, embarrassing to watch if you are unfortunately awake in Taiwan today.
