Rather One-Note Profile of a Legendary Dictator
11 August 2014 | by l_rawjalaurenceSee all my reviews

Christopher Oligiati's film is notable for the fact that he has managed to interview many people involved in the Gadaafi regime that hitherto have never agreed to speak on camera. They include a former female bodyguard, one of his closest chiefs of staff, two arms dealers from the US, who are both wanted by the FBI, and his former ambassador to Washington. Cumulatively they paint a portrait of a dictator who over the years became increasingly eccentric in his behavior, not only believing that everyone was out to assassinate him, but satisfying his sexual tastes with a procession of young boys and girls from high school or university. Anyone daring to cross him in public - or even refer to him derogatorily - was ruthlessly disposed of. All this might be true, but what GADAAFI'S SECRET WORLD really fails to explain is why the dictator lasted so long in power. It could have been because he eliminated all his enemies; but what was most apparent about him was his capacity to charm people. Although responsible for many atrocities worldwide, he largely escaped censure: even in his last years he was shown happily greeting President Berlusconi from Italy, or shaking hands with Tony Blair. Maybe this was due to his position at the head of a country with vast oil resources (everyone had to be nice to him to ensure their stocks were kept up), but there was more to it than that. What the documentary does not acknowledge is there was a public and private side to the dictator; and in many cases the public side assumed greater significance. Hence his ability to remain in power for over three decades. This documentary has much to say, but in the end the allegations about Gadaafi's private life become rather monotonous.
