The Constant Gardener

Went to the Bagdad this evening. Saw The Constant Gardener

See it. Visually beautiful, conceptually hideous, completely true.

The film may be fiction, but the story is not. Take special note of the quote at the end of the article:
"Third World lives are worth much less than the European lives. That is what colonialism was all about," said Srirupa Prasad, a visiting assistant professor of medical history and bioethics at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
