    The fact that this has a higher star rating than an innocuous film like, for example, Fantasy Island is revealing and ugly. It is vile that this movie, which was used to justify a genocide, has people feeling no shame when they say: "this is an openly wicked piece of antisemitism, BUT...."

    What a profoundly important piece of anti-revisionism this is. It's important that we confront the *facts* of the Second World War and the Holocaust so that when we say "Never Again" we mean it.

Its not politically convenient for a lot of folk to admit all of these facts but they were, and remain, facts.

    Flee is about one person who found content refuge after fleeing his war torn homeland, but this doesn't really address the issue at all. In fact, many of the aspects about this movie seem to exist to placate and comfort us.

    Amin is the documentaries focus point - he has a tragic back story but he is…
