A Review for the Reviewers, 18 December 2010
Author: grant-w-baldwin from United States

The ignorance in these reviews is astonishing. This movie was meant to be an exposition of the vicious injustice of Mugabe and his regime, and it succeeded in its intention. No matter how you slice it, the violence, injustice, and lawlessness shown in this documentary is very real. Some of the reviewers attempt to discredit the racism and violence shown in this film by commenting on the oppressive history of Rhodesia. For those people, I only recommend you consult the following link:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tu_quoque

Pointing out the reprehensible actions of others, does not validate your own or anyone else's. It's a fallacy. This film showed what it is like for a white farm owner living in modern Zimbabwe. It showed what it is like right here, right now. It was not inaccurate or with bias. It was not scripted. It was not dramatized (in fact quite the opposite, it's amazing the subjects were not more dramatic).

This film delved into a little known subject and captured a moving story. I highly recommend this film to any documentary lover.
