This documentary has an unbelievable pro-Iranian bias. They somehow manage to cover all of the Shah's atrocities while avoiding to mention any of the thousands who were killed after the Ayatollahs took over or the hundreds of thousands who have been killed or imprisoned since then by the security apparatus for being "anti-Islamic." The iconic image of the men blindfolded standing across from the Ayatollah's firing squad was surprisingly absent. Then the portrayal of the Americans in Iraq as evil boogeymen who will surely kill any Iranians they come across (like when describing the 'evil forces' Hussein fought they show an image of American soldiers). I find it funny that the western "progressives" has no problem backing and fully supporting people (Ahmadinejad's gov) who execute gays and girls for "violating laws of chastity" (aka being raped)... as long as they are against the current American govt.
