Unless you've thrown up your hands and butted out of all news of the Middle East debacle, nothing in this methodical, unimaginative documentary about the Arab-Israeli conflict will surprise, edify or, God forbid, outrage you.

As the film progresses, it becomes increasingly bold in taking sides, while all the time pretending to be unbiased.

Nothing more than a collection of sound bytes, most of them biased, many of them inflammatory, by a variety of speakers. It is hard to know what good this does.
