Honest, Thorough, Very Educational
26 February 2013 | by See all my reviews

I was at the theatrical screening of this film and there was a completely packed house. The audience reaction was very positive.

You have to look at a project like this for what it is. What it is NOT is a big budget Hollowood movie that is meant to entertain. If you want mindless entertainment that is based on some kind of made up fantasy, you will not like this film.

If you are looking for a thoughtful, thorough, educational, and authoritative look at the topic from an academic perspective, this film is awesome. There is little else out there that accomplishes what this does.

The production value is very high. From all the research I've done, the reenactments are very accurate and the acting, sets, lighting were all very strong.

The best reason to watch the film is that you can go in knowing nothing about the topic and leave with a very thorough and complete understanding of it in a very short time. So for this, it gets my recommendation.
