By Denise Simon
I received “U.N. Me – the movie” in the mail last night and spent the 90 plus minutes watching it this morning. As you may remember, I interviewed the filmmaker/producer Ami Horowitz on my blog talk show last week. After the interview and then after watching the film, I couldn’t help but write a review for the sake global awareness.
The concept of “A” United Nations at its inception was a noble cause, yet today, the United Nations has purposefully strayed from its mission, and venality reigns openly. It has been taken over by the nefarious from all nations, and is literally now a joke, if it weren’t so sad a picture of the “underbelly of mankind”.
Early on in the film, it becomes clear to the viewer that the U. N. is run by the most indoctrinated and corrupt representatives from member countries. The very same people who decide how money from the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank are spent. Horowitz makes the case clearly that these people know a gravy train when they see one.
The U. N., through its collective authorization, operates with very little oversight once a mission is initiated. The result of which is a detestable behavior model that pervades the entirety of the ranks of the personnel of member nations in each mission. Without any controlling legal authority, the mission personnel do whatever they please with a blank check.
Once the U. N. in New York sets them in motion, in places like the bloody streets of Homs, Syria or in the slums of some African city, they are often incorrigible and bloody. Many missions are filled with rape and alcohol abuse, much of which is paid for with U.S, tax dollars. At $10 billion a year from the US, coupled with unknown funds from member nations, the temptation to go rogue is mighty compelling.
The filmmakers employ satire in a visual comparison to drive the points home without shocking the audience with reality. These define the chronic occurrence of the dens of iniquity and the lawlessness. The protected sanctuary of cunning Ambassadors, world leaders, and council members is striking. The use of satire illustrates the depth of the absurdity, that if people truly understood what takes place, would be horrified by the scenes of reality, too difficult to stomach in any other manner.
Scenes in their true form would likely result in a global uprising of the truly caring, working people across the planet if they only knew. Horowitz and his team have done a wonderful job making that so, now if only people will watch. They created a masterpiece within a short 93 minutes, when in fact, the true scope of the story and the legacy of the nefarious operations at the United Nations could easily become a series under the genres of adventure, crime, and comedy. It would be a series that would span untold hours on the silver screen.
The efforts of the recent leadership of Kofi Annan and Ban Ki Moon, ranging from trying to halt the Iranian nuclear program to, preserving the peace in Lebanon, to getting food and medicine to the poorest of the poor countries is a mirage. It is a carnival of non-skilled talent, populated by people with a deep lack-of-character, a scene that rivals the most raucous carnival, or back-water circus.
In summary, the UN is a shocking and out of control institution. To call it misadventure is an understatement. Its tendrils reach every human being on earth, all without their knowledge or permission. This movie must be on the marquees of every theater globally and available for anyone to see that can press the ‘play’ button on their home video system.
