Movie Reviews

Scared to review this one!
R. Bagula | Lakeside, Ca United States | 06/24/2008

"The bible says that as you sow so shall you reap.
If you say that kidnapping, torture and denying basic civil rights is evil, you may be the next target? We have by our actions internationally
become a nation with war criminals in the police forces( CIA and FBI?).
This film is pretty much the documentary of one of thousands of cases:
in this case a Pakistani college professor is kidnapped and tortured.
He was innocent and came back alive, but polarized and pretty much psychologically destroyed. Mind and body can take only so much in
even the strongest. I read a tale by a Russian where this kind of treatment was given to political prisoners: he said the best you can do
is stop eating and get very sick. They may let you live or not.
The alternative of endlessly dying and being revived is enough to break any firm spirit. The practice or deliverance of people without any
trial or real legal process to such treatment is actually recognized since WWII as a war crime by the Geneva convention ( on soldiers or civilians).
How do I feel knowing that my country which is supposed to stand for
freedom of expression and civil right is doing this kind of thing?
I'm frankly ashamed. I think if it happens to one,
then none are really safe ( on trumped up excuses or other charges).
Be afraid."

"Excellent film, although it wasn't as popular as the version with Reese Witherspoon.
Nonetheless, this is a great movie! Very glad that Omar [Berdouni] is getting credit and popularity he deserves as an excellent actor."
