Biography, Documentary
With its seemingly complete access to the late Benazir Bhutto’s family and source material on her life and times, Duane Baughman and Johnny O’Hara’s documentary profile of Bhutto does an excellent job laying out the whys and wherefores of her career as Pakistan’s first female – and undoubtedly most politically progressive – prime minister. Flashing back from her assassination by suicide bomber on 2007, the doc looks at her father, former prime minister Zulfikar Ali Bhutto; dictator Muhammad Zia-ul-Haq; Pakistan’s endless historical strife with India; the nuclear weapons issue; relations with the US, aka “the oil thing”; and how Bhutto’s liberal policies essentially doomed her in the eyes of both the military and radical Islamists. Essential viewing. (111 min.)
