Pramoedya Ananta Toer,
Deceptive journalism at its best. A thoroughly one sided and repetitive film. John Pilger is a self righteous git who edits facts, interviews and footage to suit his point of view.
Cheap tricks like adding foreboding music and dark shaky film effects are used to accompany many shots featuring the Australian army, police, government and other opposing parties.
Token attempts to appear unbiased by allowing people to explain their actions regarding the aboriginal people are few and often cut short.
Yes the aboriginal people have suffered many injustices over the years and more needs to be done, but Pilger paints a picture of a demonic race of white Australians mercilessly eradicating the entirely innocent indigenous population. The whole film is focused on blame and not once does he show or mention anything positive that the Australian government is doing or has ever done to help.
I feel less intelligent having seen this film, it seems like John Pilger has taken many a leaf from 'A Current affair' and 'Today tonight'. Incitive rubbish. Do not waste your time.
