This review is from: Bhutto (DVD)
This was an interesting film. I learned about Benazir Bhutto's father and what happened to him, and also about Benazir herself. At the beginning of the film, I thought she was a strong, courageous woman to be prime minister in a male-dominated Islamic society. She had to contend with the forces of Pakistan's Inter-services Intelligence agency, as well as the Army, and her political opponents. She seemed sincere about bringing education, health care, housing, and social services to the people of Pakistan.
However, near the second half of the film, I started to see a much more complex figure. Was she and her husband involved in corruption, and siphoning money and investments for her family? Was she complicit in the death of her brother? It's difficult to tell, especially without understanding more about Pakistani politics, and Pakistani Islamic culture.
