Last night browsing through channels as i spent my Saturday evening home, I found this movie.. and i caught it from the start.. The movie is absolutely hilarious and real. This is how the modern documentaries should be.. about the people.
The documentary has achieved it.. with contacting people on the streets and asking their views directly instead of interviewing people sitting in their highly polished offices having no idea about how the people – the majority actually feels about a situation.
I think that for Morgan himself it turned out to be more than just the ordinary search for the most wanted man in the world. For him it was an emotional connection with all the people. The documentary had a personal touch to it.
The documentary follows the footsteps of Osama Bin Laden himself, and what is astonishing is it that it was the common uneducated man, who clearly pointed out that in the midst of all the poverty, it is a very difficult job to keep the kids from following the path of fundamentalism, which promises you not only haven but also VIRGINS in the after life.
What was most astonishing to me was his interviews or his efforts to interview kids from the high school.. not only does it become obvious the lack of freedom that they hold to speak their minds out but also that they have absolutely been brainwashed and have no thinking of their own.
It also became obvious that the Saudi are more than anything are afraid of their position in the world. They want to make sure that the world thinks that they are on the American side while they keep supporting the radical Wahhabism that they have created.
Overall, the mission might have failed for Morgan, but it was an excellent movie!
