[Movie Review] The Stoning of Soraya M. Persian. 2008.
I just finished watching "The Stoning of Soraya M. (2008), Persian" and can't believe my eyes!!! The worst part, it's based on a true incident. It's as bad as the Sati tradition in India, which thank goodness, has been abolished for good.
All the emotional and religious drama apart, it is a convincing and appealing screenplay of a strong heart wrenching novel. There are times in the movie where you want to pause and change the outcome.
Shame on humanity. Shame on all the technology, all the first world B.S. talk, all the Star Wars fiction, all the HD tv hungry middle class, and all ambitious enterpreneurs trying to change the world. There are still bodies around that leave their last breath while getting stoned by spineless cowards.
I refuse to call myself a proud citizen of the world as long as things like this happen. Religion only turns humans into animals, and that's all I have to say on this.
