Movie Reviews

Why It All Started
Samantha Kelley | USA | 03/27/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"It is frustrating to watch the news and all of the various explanations for the current conflict in the Middle East when the cause of it all is never explained. When did the problems arise and why haven't they been resolved? Who is to blame and what can be done? Is it really all for oil, is it a religious issue, or a clash of cultures? Many people want to be informed but are never given the facts or enough unbiased information to draw their own conclusions.

This documentary provides information about the beginning of the conflict which began surprisingly due to WWI and the way the land was divided in Europe. Great Britain decided to turn the Arab states into colonies and tried to westernize them. In response, the Arabs resisted the change and all things westernized. As a result of consistently alligning with losing groups (ex the Nazi Party, the Soviet Union), the Middle East has been embarassed by their history and their inability to become independent. The resentment of the west has spawned violent subgroups like Al Qaeda who act on their hatred. These problems have been growing for more than 80 years and can not be fixed quickly.

Despite the title, this film focuses little on the actual events of 9/11. Instead, it provides insight into why such an event happened and how similar attacks are likely in the future."

"If only our country's leaders could have had such a great education about what shapes the conflicts that plague our history, and unfortunately, our future! A terrific presentation of the unfolding story that is the Middle East."

"A must for anyone who doubts that America is at war with evil people."

The folks who put this together did a fantastic job of bringing together history and a grim glimpse of the future.

Balanced, interesting and thought provoking.
