Engaging documentary

  • May 27, 2011
Bhutto takes political biography documentaries to a whole new level. It manages to be engaging and entertaining whilst also educational. A few things really struck me. First, while it is sympathetic towards Bhutto, it does interview a wide range of political actors, including former president Musharraf and Bhutto's estranged niece. It doesn't shy away from allegations of corruption within her administration, even if it heavily suggests they were mostly political attacks. It also goes into some of the history of Pakistan, but again does so in an engaging and efficient way. FInally, most of the images were colorful and sharp, which made the visuals appealing to watch (it is a movie after all). My one suggestion (for a future release) would be to include an option for subtitles throughout the entire movie. Between the accents of some of the interviewees and muffled quality of some of the older interviews, it's not always easy to understand what everybody is saying. Highly recommended for students of South Asian history or women in politics.
