It's about the content, not the film-making., 10 February 2013
Author: loz-27 from United Kingdom

Almost impossible to get hold of as it seems to be banned (for no reason, let alone the "87 requested cuts" as far as I can see). It is a predictably one-sided docu-film, but then, that doesn't matter as we all know the other side that was presented to us in the media over and over again. The points are all well made and clearly argued. The editing is all pretty low-budget but that's because it is. Keith Allen has done a good job with a prickly subject. Overall then, this is a film that all people in the UK ought to watch so that it opens our minds a bit more to the actual 'democracy' we live in. For the rest of the world, well worth a watch for your curiosity.
