Assasination is not new to human history. Sadly enough history has been punctuated by many a great leaders falling to the bullets of an assasin. Gandhi, whom we cannot forget, in the words of Albert Einstein, 'The most human creature that ever walked the earth' known for his non-violence in bringing down the British Empire succumbs to the bullets of a violent gunman, a fanatic. Our own, former President John F. Kennedy, was gunned down in his motorcade. The list goes on.
The movie, "Death Of A President," could be considered as a vent of those who hate America and hate what we stand for. Ironically, the movie is released in English and Arabic. It is kind of a sado-masochism, which utilises the current world scenario and reaps the harvest of terrorism. Without engaging ourselves into the rationale for war or the conduct of the war, a violent inspiration carries within it a potency for realization.
Maybe its time we reconsidered what we are subscribing to through movies such as D.O.A.P. Not denying how positively inspirational the medium of Cinema has been--love, romance, courage, valour, patriotism and the like that uplift the human spirit. Strangely enough, movies such as D.O.A.P, are certainly not inspiring and enlightening as the distributors of the movie claim. Noah cowan describes such a volatile experimentation thus:
This is easily the most dangerous and breathtakingly original film I have encountered this year. Director Gabriel Ranges 2003 project The Day Britain Stopped which asked what might happen if Britains transportation grid was suddenly halted was his first experiment with this style...But its a long leap from Britains trains to a gunned-down Commander-in-Chief.
the left is always for things like these... unless they're on the receiving end. I hope this election cycle America rejects democrats so hard it will take libs 20 years to get back in power. these people are Godless indeed.
This movie will die a quick death on Nov 7.
