Not for the feint-hearted
11 December 2010 | by hagoo00See all my reviews

'Banned! In America' is a collection of footage showing the most gruesome, darkest side of humanity. From public executions, to suicides, to our daily slaughtering of animals, the ultimate goal of this video is to show the truly grotesque reality that people face everyday, which is almost entirely hidden from the Western world. The music is mostly unchanging, and the commentary is quite monotone, but it's the only way to do this sort of viewing justice. To have catchy music and quirky commentary would simply be offensive to the victims portrayed in the film.

I rated this video 10 not because I enjoy seeing gore (in fact it was very difficult to get through the whole thing, I had to take frequent breaks) but because I commend the creators for their exceptional research of footage which has been intentionally buried over time. Their goal was admirable - these are real people, and we all should be aware of their plight.

I stress; NOT for the feint-hearted.
