Tonight, I watched two movies broadcasted by the national TV network of our country: White Noise by Geoffrey Sax and Land of plenty by Wim Wenders. The first one was about a metaphysic phenomenon, the ability to speak with deads based on the Electronic Voice Phenomenon (EVP). And the last one was about a Palestinian-American girl who steps into a center for caring poor and homeless men and acquaints with the land of plenty that shares its gifs and affluence between special groups of people, not all of them!
Due to the horrific atmosphere of white noise, it was censored a little, its terrible sections I think, like most of American movies that comes to Iran.
After watching these two films, I remembered the bitter memory of “ 300 the movie “, a newly Warner Bros released production with the first ranking place in the best-seller trailers table.
Not just insulting to the personality of Persian people and mocking them in a baffled way, 300 the movie is redrawing a comic picture of reality into the canvas of historic lesson. Unfortunately, this co-Iraq war propaganda film that leads the viewer into an imaginary way about the history of Persia, insults and offenses the great, dignified and delightful civilization of Ancient Persia as the world’s oldest urban place.
I just want to ask that what happened if all the filmmakers, producers, writers and artists didn’t attempt to omit the historical realities and choose what they want among the pages of history?
I want to ask that what happened if 300 the movie would sketch the real and trustworthy picture of Thermopylae war between Persia and Greece?
I cannot find any answer to these questions until the anti-human and anti-morality sentiments are died in the mind of all artistic creators.
We are getting closer to Persian New (Norouz as an ancient global cultural heritage) Year that you can find its particular logo on Google’s official holiday page. Perhaps it was the foreigner’s New Year special gift to us…
