Oscar Winner for a Reason
7 July 2011 | by tvrepeaterSee all my reviews

The best thing I've watched in a long while. As Americans it seems we think in 1945 when the war (WWII) ended and the German concentration camps were liberated it was game over. That said, it was literally shocking to see and hear the unforgivable behavior of the British during the period 1945-1948. What the hell was their OBSESSION with camps? This incessant need to herd people from one camp to another, constantly detaining. Creepy weird, oddly caveman, to see it was nauseating. As an American the thought of being "herded" is beyond my imagination. As I watch I wonder; What did GB have to gain from their aggressive imperialism as regards the region known as Palestine? Admittedly, I loved watching the British get their ass KICKED. As history notes, it's been 1 long decline for British civilization since that time. A wrecked economy, poverty and ignorance. We can see it in their teeth. Amazon doesn't have this but Netflix does, run don't walk. It's that good.
