Should I watch the movie tonight or not? ABC1

It's a docudrama about the trial of Tony Blair for war crimes.

David Stratton panned it, so I'm thinking it might be worth watching. Stratton said it was propaganda or something. Well, his propaganda could be my truth!

No Wait, he said that the script is so contemptuous it would only appeal to like-minded people.

Reading this Wiki synopsis will save you 72 minutes of wasted time.
No doubt most of the ABC viewers will take it as gospel truth, although some of them may be puzzled by Hillary Clinton taking over from George Bush.
The attempt at predicting Blair's future was first aired on 15th January 2007, just in time to start getting most of the predictions wrong.
That will not stop it from being shown to primary school history students in 10 years time as a true historical account of Blair's "crimes".
Another reason I won't be watching it is because the actor playing the part of Blair looks more like a dim-witted dentist than a prime minister.

I'm glad you feel that way about Stratton. In my naivete, I thought he was just a poncey movie reviewer. Then he reviewed a movie I had just seen. I thought it was the worse thing ever. He raved about it like it was the 2nd coming. Babel. Debbie Schlussel gave it a zero out of 10 and my radar was back on track. Mehaul.

How was it Kae? I see the TV tag referred to it as comedy. Mehaul.
