Waterboarding: A Cannes Film Festival Favorite.

May 21, 2010

Route Irish Director Ken Loach

Waterboarding, despised by the Left in America, is a big hit with the uber-left at the Cannes Film Festival.

A scene from Ken Loach’s new film sets up like this:

To extract information from one unwilling source, Fergus (Mark Womack) resorts at one point to the interrogation technique known as waterboarding.

The sequence is one of the most disturbing in the movie, not least because the actor in question – Trevor Williams – endured the controversial process for real.

“We were going to shoot the sequence with a kind of mask over his face, but once we started to shoot it the mask didn’t work,” Loach explained.

“He was waterboarded, poor man, and he bore it stoically.”

The film is the front-runner to win the prestigious Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival.

It seems as though what is considered torture when done to murderers and terrorists to for the sole purpose of protecting American lives, is amusing, top notch entertainment when done to actors for the sole purpose of making directors and studio executives millions.

Will the hypocrisy ever end?

    These idiots are so smug and elite, but remember ,the liberal mind can’t understand hypocracy, due to the inflated egos and low self esteem. What do you want from people , actors and the like , who make their living playing someone else.

      Yes, you are correct, but I sure would like to hear the rationalization: I could use a good laugh.
