Understanding the movie entitled “Denial”

Scene from movie entitled Denial

Here is the plot of the movie entitled “Denial”:

In 1996, an American historian, Deborah Lipstadt, was sued by a British historian, David Irving, over Lipstadt’s claim that Irving was a liar and a falsifier of history.

In his books and lectures, Irving had contended that Auschwitz had no gas chambers. In bringing the suit, Irving charged that Lipstadt had damaged his career and his reputation.

The following quote is from a news article which you can read in full at http://www.dispatch.com/content/stories/life_and_entertainment/2016/10/21/1-movie-review-denial-plainly-told-story-of-holocaust-libel-case-fascinates.html

Begin quote:

….because Lipstadt’s allegedly libelous comments are unambiguous and because she and her publisher don’t want to settle, she and her lawyers need to prove two things or lose the case:

• That Irving’s Auschwitz writings were inaccurate.

• That he did it intentionally, for the purpose of pushing an anti-Semitic agenda.

End quote

I have seen this movie, and I don’t think that it will win any awards.

  1. These are links to information about David Irving that indicate he may be a British intelligence asset and “controlled opposition.” I don’t endorse these views. I am only drawing attention to them because The Holocaust is multi-billion dollar show business leviathon as well as the most lucrative shakedown racket in human history.

    Every year new editions of The Diary of Anne Frank are published to accommodate school children across the world who have been assigned to read it. Holocaust history is a government mandated curriculum in every EU country and in many states in the USA. A recent scientific study conducted by a panel of experts ihas determined that if every copy of this fatuous text that gets reprinted annually were placed end to end they would stretch from San Francisco to Sierra Leon and on out into space all the way to Jupiter!

  2. As I have stated before… This movie is going to suck. Its counter productive.

      On the contrary: I learned a lot from this movie. For example, I didn’t know that Lipstadt goes jogging every morning.

        Still doesn’t mean the movie its self is going to be poor quality.

        “For example, I didn’t know that Lipstadt goes jogging every morning.”

        That might just be Hollywood working, but I am not sure how this again changes anything.

          Read this to learn about how to use the word “itself”.

          When I started college, back in the Dark Ages, all the new students had to take a test in English before they were admitted into the University of Missouri.

          I passed the test, with a perfect score, and did not have to take an English class. Many of the students had to take “Remedial English” because they could not pass the entrance exam.

      • I can’t imagine Lipstadt going out jogging in real life – nor do any praying at Auschwitz.The entire Movie is nothing more than an artfully contrived stunt to buttress the “holocaust” scam and denigrate the revisionists and so-called “deniers”. It doesn’t even matter if its a good, or well acted movie – or even if many people go to watch it at the cinema or on TV.

        The purpose of the Movie has already been largely achieved – and that that is the fanfare of publicity given to it in the mainstream media beforehand – from the time the film project was planned – right up until the trailers were issued and the opening date announced.

        The storyline itself is incidental – and purely designed to win over the audience to the side of holocaustianity, and to shy-away and reject any questioning of the established myth. Thus, they have portrayed the Lipstadt character as “youngish”, attractive, modern and popular. ( just look at the respectful, admiring expression on her advisor’s face in the image above.) And jogging was probably chosen to emphasise Lipstadt’s supposed connection with ordinary folk – to make her appear as an energetic, lively, outdoor person who everyone greets with a smile and a friendly word.

        Once Lipstadt has been carefully presented as a likeable hero which the audience can all identify with, then they are next taken on a highly-charged emotional roller-coaster ride, with solemn prayers at Auschwitz itself, and weepy, heartstring interviews with former inmates and survivors.

        All, of course, designed to hammer home the message that the “holocaust” was a real, tragic event and should not be challenged. After all – you don’t to be on the side of the character who plays Irving do you – a shrill, bullying, loner?

          You have written an EXCELLENT review of the film. I agree with everything that you wrote. I felt that the jogging scenes were wrong. She was shown jogging in large cities, which I believe is a dangerous thing for a woman to do alone. That is why every city has jogging trails.

  3. Jett is likely correct, ALL holocaust propaganda movies win awards, why would this be an exception? If nothing else, you’ll see it played up endlessly. I refuse to see the movie because in spending even a dime, you support the producers of false history and propaganda.

    Comment by Ubermench — October 21, 2016 @ 4:54 pm

    • Yes. But this one is about the defense against an alleged “Holocaust denier” – similar to persons reading and writing on this blog. And how that alleged “Holocaust denier” had his ass handed to him in court. Viewing things through the other side of the lens could only strengthen your case against that other side – so that you can avoid getting YOUR ass handed to you.

    • My point of course being that the movie could indirectly help Revisionism. I’ve seen the movie and don’t get this sense from it; but you never know. As they say, any publicity is good publicity. This movie could very well create contrarians to its theme.

    • You wrote: “ALL holocaust propaganda movies win awards, why would this be an exception?”

      I believe that you are correct. This movie could win an award for the worst movie ever made.

  4. It will win LOTS of awards. Holocaust movies always do.

      I think that this movie will be an exception. It might win an award for the worst movie ever made, but not an award in any other category.

  5. If Irving stuck to the ORIGINAL charges Lipstadt made he would have won but he chose to take in the whole holocaust.

    • I first wrote about Irving’s case against Lipstadt, a year ago, on this blog post:

      Comment by furtherglory — October 21, 2016 @ 2:09 pm

    • Irving sued Lipstadt for libel against him. Lipstadt’s defense was to “take in the whole holocaust” as you say. You’ve somehow managed to get things backwards it seems, Jim. Whoda thunk?

      Comment by blake121666 — October 21, 2016 @ 5:23 pm

    • BTW Jim, I think you should definitely see this movie. It is an irrationally emotive presentation from the anti-Revisionist perspective – not too dissimilar from your mirror image. I think watching it might give you a better perspective on how to more effectively promote your views on these things. You will see how ineffective she is and learn that about yourself.

      Comment by blake121666 — October 21, 2016 @ 5:39 pm

      • Hey blake, why don’t you worry about yourself and take your brains out of your ass worrying about Jim. At least he is trying. What the hell have you done with your life? You Jimmy come latelys always try to tell others how to do things, probably are Jews, shills, trolls and traitors to anything revisionist. So pull the fingers in and look at yourself please….I’m really getting fed up with you kind of people…
