The Redemption of General Butt Naked
85 minutes — 14A, DV, Daniele Anastasion & Eric Strauss, United States, 2011
OTTAWA PREMIERE | OFFICIAL SELECTION, SUNDANCE 2011
Despite its title, this doc has a sobering subject — the Liberian warlord who, with his army of child soldiers, slaughtered thousands during the country’s protracted civil war. Ten years later, he re-emerged as an evangelical preacher, preaching (and seeking) forgiveness. Whether or not he has earned it — or possibly can — is the central question of this “unsetting film that holds you tightly in its grip for its almost too short running time.” (Hollywood Reporter)
