  1. A gripping and important documentary.
  2. 75
    In an attempt to understand this phenomenon, Ziv interviews leaders of terrorist groups like Hamas, failed hit men now in jail and relatives of those who died carrying out these attacks. The effect is frightening.

    "There is no antidote for the human bomb," one Sri Lankan official flatly states, but Ziv's film offers a number of important insights into a phenomenon that's only gaining momentum.
  4. 70
    Religious fanaticism gets even scarier in this hour-long doc.
  5. It's frightening because it's so effective in fomenting fear and because it's so easy to recruit bombers among repressed and hopeless societies.
