Storyline

A response to the failure of the American mass media to provide the public with relevant and accurate information about the standoff between the US and Iran, as happened before with the lead up to the invasion of Iraq. We have heard that Iran is a nuclear menace in defiance of the international community, bent on "wiping Israel off the map", supporting terrorism, and unwilling to negotiate. This documentary disputes these claims as they are presented to us and puts them in the context of present and historical US imperialism and hypocrisy with respect to Iran. It looks at the struggle for democracy inside Iran, the consequences of the current escalation and the potential US and/or Israeli attack, and suggests some alternatives to consider.

Boring and Monotonous
27 May 2009 | by shervmanSee all my reviews

Monotonous, a rather presentation and propaganda like approach as opposed to an upbeat exciting illustration.

I mostly agree with the points made in the movie, but I find it hard for others (who've never heard of this) to follow. As I mentioned the slow rhythm is quite boring and tedious.Some of the experts get away with making statements without any explanations. I find the "clearly, this is so" approach quite unacceptable.

The take home message is that this is not a documentary, but rather a presentation! The filmmakers are using what looks to me like power-point bullet form format for almost the entire time.

I'd give the content an 8 out of 10 but the movie as a whole sucks for the above reasons! Only watch this movie if you have no idea about Iran, or would like to learn of the historical involvement of the US in the middle east in the past and present.
