With so much junk filling the TV schedule lately I've had to work hard
to weed out the stuff that isn't even worth watching - and there is
lots of that.
But this movie is worth your time.
It's nice to see a movie for a change with an alternative political
point of view. This movie skewers the right wing fear mongering
machine. It highlights how many politicians create a crisis and then
make up someone to blame. It's easy to distract the public from the
sins of a corrupt government when that government CREATES a crisis and
then blames it on the victim.
And this movie illustrates this type of tactic in a very obvious way.
Maybe too obvious, but sometimes you have to lay it on a little thick
to make your point really obvious.
Oh, and did I mention one of the main stars - Rachelle Lefevre - Wow.
Beautiful with big red hair. I can't wait to see her in her next
