The film deserves viewing, especially by those unfamiliar with this series of horrific events.
Delivers a lucid, elegant (insofar as that is possible) and reasonably level-headed analysis of the issues that have clouded conversation around the Armenian Genocide.
A sporadically successful indictment of how U.S. policy has been synonymous with alternative facts.
It's a masterful effort.
All of this material proves fascinating. It's a shame, then, that so much of Intent to Destroy plays like a special feature for the DVD edition of The Promise.
While there may be no completely dispassionate way to discuss its topic - the Armenian genocide - the film's balance of emotion and composure helps make its stories even stronger.
Intent to Destroy may not inspire many people to watch The Promise - which is currently streamable on Amazon - but at least The Promise allowed Intent to Destroy to be made.
Intent to Destroy goes well beyond the genre to build a terse, infuriating case against a monstrous injustice, one with frightening relevance to events today.
There is quite a bit of fascinating history and timely exposures of human rights violations.
It's not just a film you will feel obliged to watch out of horror at what it depicts, but a film that genuinely fascinates throughout, such is the breadth of thought contained within it.
A stunning examination of genocide's roots. An ominous study of official denial
The global lack of knowledge that's resulted from Turkey's denial campaign is more amnesia than ignorance.
