of course it's objective
18 November 2003 | by tedburtSee all my reviews

This film is objective. The subject of the film speaks for itself without the need for heavy handed treatment.

If anyone has come out of this feeling it has a heavy anti-death penalty message, then maybe that's telling them something, because the film is simply factual.

No mention are made of the victims of crime or the reasons (or lack of them) people have been sentenced to death in the first place. Because this film isn't about crime, its about whether or not the principles behind capital-punishment are immoral and unjust, the abuse of power, and the hypocrisy of countries who consider it a form of justice.

Anyone who supports the institutional killing of prisoners should be made to watch this film. No doubt many who do will find the shooting of Mohammsdine Salar by Beirut gunmen grotesque and brutal as opposed to the highly acceptable (slow, agonising) use of the chair and lethal injection.
