Another interesting, but lopsided documentary.
8 May 2020 | by flickloverSee all my reviews

The Oslo Diaries is very much like every documentary that deals with the Israel-Palestinian conflict. It doesn't necessarily demonize Israel, but it shows very little about the corruption and lies of the Palestinian leadership. Was there a good faith effort for peace in the 90's? I guess so. But to show alwaysvtge perspective of the Palestinians as victims and not focus on the terrorism perpetrated by their leaders is irresponsible. It shows news about a killing that an Orthodox Jewish settler perpetrated in Hebron against people In prayer. Horrible of course, and it shows Shimon Peres disgust ar this act rightly so. But the film never focuses on the constant fear and violence that Israelis have to live with.

If you are going to show one side's problems? Show both. And also, the film basically blames the fall of the peace process on Benjamin Netanyahu. Not a mention of Mahmoud Abbas. Not a mention of the violence done by Hamas. It does rightfully end with the assassination of Yitzhak Rabin by a an orthodox group against the peace process. There are certainly people on both sides that are against peace. But this documentary decided to show only one side of that.

Not as objective as it wants the viewer to believe.

This film is very much directed at anyone who disagrees with Benjamin Netanyahu.
