Why does he deserve a documentary?
11 July 2019 | by sdavid-41660See all my reviews

Ben Ferencz was evidently a graduate of the John Lennon School of Political Simpletons. Having lived nearly a century, he can't seem to understand why we don't just all join together in a chorus of Imagine and love one another right now.

For starters, he might try asking Hamas, Hezbollah or Bashar al-Assad.

Mr. Ferencz should be commended at age 27 for prosecuting Nazi Einsatzkommandos, even though he was able to win his convictions of these relative small fry through documentary evidence alone without ever having to actually examine any witnesses. He should be slightly less commended as a soldier who spent the War by his own admission shooting down allied planes with very little remorse.

The film ends by focusing on his later years, when he devoted his life to congratulating himself for creating the ICC, an organization that has become so corrupted, the war criminals it should have been prosecuting are instead perverting it to go after the good guys.

Better to try repairing this joke of a court rather than tell us how busy he's been promoting it.
