Movie Reviews

Essential to understand violence (including including Islamo
CMW-Tzvi | Philadelphia, PA | 11/01/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is an essential DVD for anyone who wants to understand the pressures of violence (including Islamofascist terrorism) on European politics.

As time fades, fewer Americans remember the assassination of Pym Fortuyn during the Dutch election cycle of 2002. (Fortuyn is often described as a right-wing politician, but the facts that he was openly gay and that his concern was for the well-being of Dutch society seem to show the lie regarding his actual position on the political spectrum. Only if you make the assumption that his questioning of the Netherlands' very liberal immigration policy would rouse nationalist fervor against all Arab/Moslem immigrants can you call him right wing - he thought that more controls were needed to not give haven to Islamic terrorists.)

More of us remember the assassination of Dutch filmmaker Theo van Gogh which occurred in broad daylight while this film was being prepared for distribution. This DVD includes van Gogh's film about Fortuyn's murder, Theo's personal video diaries during the filming and post-production period, and a Dutch TV documentary one year later dealing with Theo's assassination and the lack of action by the police before, during, & after his murder.

Interestingly, the same ineptitude/possible complicity of the Dutch autorities can be seen in both the film and the documentary. One even could wonder whether the assassinations of Fortuyn & van Gogh were orchestrated by the same group of politically connected persons in the police forces...

As a political junkie of an international stripe, I found this entire presentation captivating.
Excellent, almost...

"The film was excellent and riveting up to the resolution, which was weak. I assumed someone else gave it a final edit after Van Gogh's murder, maybe not. In either the case, the end wasd too 60ish. But, overall, well worth the seeing."
