wow, what a ride
3 March 2010 | by StofftSee all my reviews

This was one of the best things I've seen in a long time, after 10 minutes I was so absorbed into what was displayed in front of me that I couldn't do anything else than just sit there and get sucked right in.

I am a human being that has questioned the western world's terror like behavior and often asked myself why we are so violent and builds everything around violence? This movie kinda just connected the dots between various things that has happened up 'til now and it follows the same agenda thru the history of our society.

You are not being controlled and lead by a voice, this movie only contains pictures and various clips (and in some places text to help you along on this ride) and its just a brilliant piece of work.
