She was only human
30 July 2010 | by (Oakland CA) – See all my reviews

The danger of films like For Neda is that they tend to place their subject matter on a pedestal. Such, unfortunately, is the case with this obsequious hagiography about Neda Agha-Soltan, the young woman murdered by basij militia in 2009. The film is relentlessly orientalist, featuring interviews with middle-class and professional Iranians who, naturally, want to convey the message that Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is the new Hitler. For Neda is also padded with footage from superior documentaries such as Letters to the President and Divorce Iranian Style. All in all, this is a film made by western liberals, for western liberals. It's not bad, and the raw demonstration footage has value, but overall feels more like propaganda than the truth.
