I just watched the bizarre, fake beard-laden, plastic-sword populated movie, The Innocence of Muslims, that has so many Muslims upset. The stock footage at the end of it--with tire tracks among the camels--serves as an exclamation of awfulness.
The green-screen desert scenes don't come up to the level of Ed Wood. I believe this movie was filmed in California--where there are deserts.
The editing sucks too.
Rioters are now protesting this film that should be ignored in Sudan, Tunisia, Pakistan, and Germany. The walls of our embassy in Tunisia were breached. One person is dead in Lebanon.
The Obama administration wants YouTube to pull Innocence of Muslims here, as it has done in Egypt and Libya.
That of course will be viewed not only as a sign of weakness--and a betrayal of our respect for free speech--but it will in a way "endorse" the movie. If Innocence of Muslims is banned, a lot of people will want to see it because its banned status.
