Movie Reviews

Scared Scared
V. Saunders | Australia | 11/05/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This DVD delivers what it promises. Low key but visually stunning I found this DVD reassuring in it's simple message - even in the worst of places there is hope. And what amazing stories these stories of hope are."
Hope springs eternal over man's inhumanity to man
Kyle Tolle | Phoenix, Arizona USA | 08/11/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"In a 5 year undertaking, documentary filmmaker Velcrow Ripper travels to several international locations that have all experienced far too much tragedy, suffering, and loss. Although this is just a handful out of many more areas that have been victimized by horrible events, each one featured here is quite significant in its own right when considering the history involved.

Beginning in Bhopal, India and moving on through Cambodia, Bosnia, Hiroshima, Afghanistan, New York and eventually culminating in Israel and Palestine, time is spent exploring the past and present fates of these environments along with thoughts from the populace. In conjunction with passionate interviews of those impacted by these events, video footage that accompanies these segments is both powerful and impressive.

Despite living in a world of continual instability and uncertainty, people everywhere have demonstrated time and again that hope can be a profound element in shaping a better future. That is the attitude shared by many in this program along with the fact that a lot more compassion and much less negativity would be wonderful stepping stones towards improving the human race altogether.

I found `Scared Sacred' to be a worthwhile and thought provoking documentary on many levels. The presentation as far as narration, camera work, and sound quality were all well executed and the DVD has several special features that measure up nicely in combination with the main feature.

Cinema of the Heart
Blue Coronet | east coast | 03/27/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Director Velcrow Ripper's ScaredSacred is an amazing, powerful, uplifiting film documenting stories of transformation in the face of crisis. I didn't feel I was witnessing these stories as much as accompanying him into the darkness to find the light in places such as Bhopal India, the Balkans, Israel-Palestine, the killing fields of Cambodia, NYC just after 9/11, and others.

I just saw his new film, Fierce Light: Where Spirit Meets Action ( -- a transformational experience in cinema. See it!"
