trying a detached approach on a disturbing reality
19 July 2009 | by (Herzlya, Israel) – See all my reviews

It is the first documentary of Louis Theroux that I have seen, and I still need to get accustomed (probably) with his style. Although he is dealing with a very difficult and disturbing reality - violence in today's South Africa and the means of protection some of the inhabitants or communities there need to take in order to protect their businesses, properties and even life - Theroux tries to take a detached and objective approach. He gets together with the heads and members of the private security firms, listens to their own reports about the violent methods these companies use in order to fight violence, and films quite a number of raids and forced evacuations these companies go through, including some very difficult situations. The overall level of violence in South Africa has certainly its roots and explanations in the local politics, in the economy, in the corruption but Theroux prefers not to share his verdict with the viewers but rather let them judge by themselves. The tentative works pretty well, and by the end all viewers are better informed, and they have probably also reached an opinion by themselves.
