as a european i say WATCH IT!
25 June 2019 | by ricewithaspoonSee all my reviews

Well, contrary to the other europeans commenting here i do not intend to take the mentioned parallels to hitler out of context (when it's about gasing monkeys) Or resolve to hairsplitting. And to imply that this documentary communicates the oh so arrogant US is - what else - better... i have not heard anyone state such a thing. how about we look at the facts. if the story is about VW it could be somewhat legit to also talk about the country - in fact ..all countries involved. it is also legit & critical to raise the issue and dynamics of law making & bending we are exposed to. i am not anti-europe or anti anything.. but one thing for sure is true.. stuff like this surfs the newspapers like a superchilled stoner a mellow wave. not much is done, if anything. some talk. and talk. but nothing is done. nobody gets active nobody feels responsible to raise the s*** head on. but hey .. again.. isn't it everywhere like that? much more could be done? (i can only talk for myself, this general lack of transparency is paralysing me. inquiring anything is mostly seen as an insult or critique here...it is exhausting and seems endless.) i am shocked to read now that winterkorn is still basically untouched.

there is no point in one nation pointing fingers at another. we are all in this together as should be clear by now... "we are all under the "free" market and capitalism" - umbrella. and we are all breathing the same nitro-air.

i for one am happy to have seen it and have a thousand questions now.. which i think is or should be the intent of a documentary. that they probably will never be answered is another story...
