I Wonder if People Gave It a Low Score for Political Reasons
14 May 2012 | by (Roanoke, Va.) – See all my reviews

It's been a full six years since I last posted any comments on the IMDb. But, I thought this was a generally well-made films. It seems like people on the political right, both in Turkey and here in America, would arbitrarily hate this film for its very controversial content. If a person has actually viewed this film, and given it a low score, for whatever reason, that is fine. But, I've noticed that films like these are sometimes targets of campaigns against the film and that in some instances people just give the film a very low score because they hate what it stands for. I was actually very disturbed by this film, but it exposes many of the reasons for the underlying tensions between the west (not just America) and the Islamic world; some of which actually do not directly involve religion. One does not have to agree with the politics of a film to see it as a good work.
