Frustrating

It was or rather sounded quite intriguing. Hearing from the man who was "responsible" for the war in Iraq. For the assumption that they had Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMDs). Unfortunately the documentary seems to lose its focus - or rather be focused too much on the one individual.

It is nice to see that point of view (vantage point) - and he seems to have some merit in some of the things he is saying. If it wasn't him - they probably would have used someone else to find an excuse for a war. But it also seems that he does not care too much. Even when at some moment there might be an inner struggle and even sadness that comes forward.

But there is so much more that I would have loved to know. So much more that could have been explored and disected ... as it is, it still is intriguing and quite the oddity ... but this alone will not paint the whole picture. Not even half of it ...

Interesting subject - poor execution

The background story for the search of WMD in Iraq unravels through interviews in this documentary.

But the film crashes even before it can take off. They have dubbed the dialogue to german - when they should have added subtitels instead. Now you cant hear how the interviewee sounds like when he is talking. All you hear is a muddle of german- and arabic voices. This makes the show feel like some kind of hybrid between a documentary and a theatre.

If a documentary shall be taken seriously - present ppl as they are and how they sound. The authenticity is gone otherwise. Dubbing went out of style some time during the cold war.

Keep up!

not fair enough

The director puts too many personal ideology on asking questions to Rafed Ahmed Alwan. Very strongly presumsion that Rafed Ahmed Alwan is evil and should fell shame for his action. I do not think the film presents a balance point of view on documantary Iraq war.
