“Denial” movie backfires

“Denial” movie contra David Irving backfires

This weekend we managed to see Hollywood's “Denial” movie about David Irving’s libel suit in British court against American Prof.  Deborah Lipstadt. Our full review will appear in the November issue of Revisionist History newsletter. 

For those of you who don’t subscribe to our newsletter, here is a capsule verdict: the movie is so incompetent (in addition to being snooze-inducing), that it will mainly increase public curiosity about the Leuchter Report’s crucial significance to Auschwitz studies, the Zundel trial, Irving’s work, and his deservedly lofty status as a military historian. 

While the film’s production values are high and the cast is A list, the director is no Spielberg and consequently the movie backfires. “Denial” gives new impetus to World War II revisionism, which heretofore was assumed by the public to be a coterie of drooling cranks and crackpots. Even in a movie that detests Mr. Irving, he nonetheless comes off as a formidable advocate. Thank you, Hollywood!

Among the sparse audience at the screening we attended in Spokane, Washington, from snatches of conversation we overheard afterward from those not wearing yarmulkes, in general they were left dissatisfied and confused by the film.

Fantastic news. Hopefully this is a sign that the veil is falling away that covered the incredible lies of the holohoax.
