Trivia

This movie was directed and edited under the supervision of Geert Wilders, a Dutch right wing politician. The Dutch public broadcasting network companies refused to air it, and Wilders had declined an offer from the Moslimomroep (MO) or Muslim Broadcasting Company, who wanted to air the film in its entirety. Seeing no other options, Wilders had the film posted on Liveleak, and can now be watched on-line. See more »

Rehashes old territory----bores
27 March 2008 | by grenavitarSee all my reviews

I am not particularly squeamish. I don't get insulted when people feel the need to define someone else's religion and then insult it. But, for the love of God if that's the business you're in be creative. Take Theo Van Gogh's submission. I don't agree with the message but it was aesthetically well done and it had a gimmick. It told a story, had good art and music direction, and conveyed its point. I would rate it a 7 or 8. This film is rehashing the same political point but with no creativity. It takes random images which you could find in Obsession and random Qur'an quotes. The only slightly new detail is the clippings from Dutch newspaper. I feel that Geert Wilders is grasping for something--for the notoriety of Theo Van Gogh if not the bullet. But all he comes up with is a hack of a hack film. Whether you agree with the political message or not it seems hard to find any redeeming quality in the direction or writing of this film and it makes me ashamed that the media paid it such heed before its release just because it was "shocking".
