Questionable narrative
12 October 2019 | by mrdonleoneSee all my reviews

It's not that gruesome as it appears to be: a series of car accidents, sure, but we've seen all of that before; however, the thing which keeps it shocking is the gruesome background information the talkshow host is informing us of, thereby making us identify with the victims and,once again, believe we are equal to their same situation... It is here, though, that Hollywood very keenly pulls our leg again: we don't know what the narrator is telling us is true, but we assume it to be; likewise, we assume on similar accounts that the Germans were the enemy during the second world war, but who might say for sure?? When we believe the words of the leading man in this documentary we will feel awful at its ending: but never forget all is equal to one big love. Who cares about traffic accidents!?! Well, if you listen to the words of this man and accept them as the truth, than you will. But is it worth it??!
