The 2017 movie ‘The Promise’ starring Christian Bale was a masterpiece, but not for the reasons you might think. It wasn’t the cinematography, the acting, costumes, or musical scores – no, the genius of this movie was in it ulterior motive and it’s existence against all odds. This story about the Armenian genocide by the Turks between the years 1915 and 1923 during World War I, had been silenced over and over during the last 50 years despite multiple efforts of producers and directors trying to take it to the big screen. The movie only made it recently because it was privately funded, and kept quiet during its production. Also interestingly enough, the proceeds of the fil went to charity. I believe what is afoot here is quite possibly something refreshingly noble coming out of Hollywood. Could it be that in the interest of educating the world about a very politically incorrect historical atrocity, someone in Hollywood is making movies based on principle? I believe this just might have happened. Further evidence to this fact lies in a somewhat dull love triangle that the movie was alleged to be about, but quickly becomes more of a muddled side story to a grander theme. The world did not need another romantic film, the world needed a hard dose of truth. The world needed to hear about the Muslim atrocities in the killing of 1.5 million Armenian Christians and Jews.
