THE ULTIMATE LIE.
A faux documentary that came on the heels of the controversial Danish Muhammad cartoons and another similar film, Death of a President (2006). By portraying former Danish Prime Minister Anders Fogh Rasmussen as having an affair with a young man and subsequently being assassinated by him, the filmmakers want to know if their audience can watch the movie and not cry for censorship, as the Muslim world did after those cartoons. Archive footage blends with dramatization, but the film is a bit silly at times and never builds much tension.
