Bold. Thorough. Informative. Inspiring
2 September 2018 | by zzack-56032See all my reviews

The ideas within this film are discussed from both sides. The issue is presented in a way that provokes meaningful thought and discussion.

I'm glad for this movie. Any inspiring documentarian or film maker should watch it.

I would also, of course, encourage anyone learning about medicine, bio ethics, psychology, public health, anthropology or even religious studies to watch this film and to consider its merits.

Serious film enthusiasts will appreciate the boldness of the discussion. Few who watch the movie in full will be able to speak the same of routine circumcision.

Those who treat this film with dismissive flippancy have probably not watched it or given it serious thought and introspection.

Thank you for this film.
