Inside Hamas

Hatred is tedious. There are only so many times you can see an explosion followed by retaliatory gunfire and miscellaneous carnage without experiencing empathy fatigue. To the credit of director Rodrigo Vazquez, this is no formula style exploration of the Israel-Palestine conflict. Instead, it's a look at the Hamas organisation and its disputed claim to be leader of the Palestinian people. A ballsy Argentinian, Vazquez claims to have unprecedented access to the inner sanctum of this insular organisation; and the tense behind-the-scenes footage shows the Middle East conflict is much more layered than just Israeli versus Palestinian.

An interesting doco demonstrating yet again that only those who make a genuine effort at peace deserve its rewards.
