| Imbedded with the enemy
Andrew Denton is renown in Australia for his interviewing style. He excels in getting his subjects to reveal incredibly intimate things about themselves without realising what they are doing. He's a very non-threatening and likable person but incredibly intelligent and quick witted. He will often be three or four steps ahead of his interviewee and adjusts the direction of his questions accordingly. I watched this in a batch of religious documentaries which included Bill Maher's Religulous and Richard Dawkins' Enemies of Reason. It's a standout because, unlike the other two, Denton's unassuming nature allows him into the inner sanctum of the religious zealots. At no time throughout any of the interviews does Denton claim to be "of faith", however his subjects all assume he is. He doesn't contradict them but lets them display just how ridiculous the faithful can be. For example when some stall holders want to bless him, he stands there politely taking the blessing. How you come away from viewing this will depend on your faith. If you're a believer you'll see Denton as trying to make fun of religion and the unsuspecting believers. Non believers will be frightened by the dedicated extremism displayed by these normal people.
