Showing the movie would be a great way to open a debate. I would love to hear its charges answered as clearly as they're stated.
Often, the movie feels like sitting through a college lecture class.
Presents a condensed argument in favor of prosecuting Israeli leaders in the court of American public opinion.
While their methods are a bit pedantic -- the narration is monotone, the structure of the film resembles a lesson plan -- they provide a wealth of evidence that the media game is rigged against Arabs.
The film is meant for those curious about untold stories and the stories behind the stories, and it is hard to dismiss out of hand.
Disturbing and depressing, although a complete historic perspective is missing.
