RENDITION

Another movie on the "War on Terror" is out in theaters now. I've heard that it contains a prolonged scene of water boarding, the non-torture that 'simulates' drowning. It seems a bit obsene to demonstrate torture in order to get people's attention, they should know it is wrong without needing to be shown. But if that were true I guess we wouldn't be doing this would we?

A few years ago there was a movie called IRREVERSIBLE, which used a very unique backward cinimatography to show how Revenge and Rath make individuals become Murders, you sercome to the very evil you attempt to destroy. There is a lesson in ther somewhere. Anyway, the RAPE scene in the movie was 15 minutes long. Critics called it pornography. I watched, and understood something, you must experience RAPE in order to truely understand it, not that you must be the victem of tragic violence or a preditor, but you must see it, hear it, imagine it fully, to truly understand the horror and terror. Unless you face the thing you fear, it will control you. Perhaps that is what RENDITION is trying to do?
