Network's hypocritical righteousness: "Dangerous gamble" recycled and clichéd | Israel today


Instead of covering up and reviewing a problematic and sensitive issue and justifying the warning signs, red lights and dramatic music, the docu-program pulled tiredly recycled archive material from the attic and failed to scrape a dash of real critical documentation of a social problem that should really be judged and not just mandatory

We've been to this movie more than once or twice, and we ground the following story so much that last night I had to make sure over and over again during the docu-movie "Dangerous Gambling" that I did not watch a rerun of something from a decade and a half ago.

The startling promos promised to reveal the truth behind the illegal gambling industry, however Eli Senor limped into the mud and came out of it with a clichéd and sloppy investigation, which overlapped to cover the edges of the complex subject.

He explained to his viewers that "bets" are gambling, asked gamblers with masks, detailed what happens to those who get entangled in the gray market and found out what an agenda in Guba's life looks like.

Without a pinch of visual sophistication or new and relevant information, but with frequent use of archival materials and shaded characters, the film mixed recycled material and illuminated it with the most threatening and frightening warning lights.

At the summary stage the state was singled out as allowing a hacked playground as a result of its attitude to gambling, and the situation produces failure in enforcement, education, research and treatment.

And perhaps it actually makes sense that a "dangerous gamble" is actually a recycling of articles and investigations from the past, because in the last two decades the market has remained as it was, and no banal film changes reality.

Want to bet how it will end?

Every Tuesday evening, and yesterday there was one, Network 13 broadcasts the weekly lottery from Mifal Hapayis.

The same channel that had frightened and frightened an hour and a half earlier, was moving to promote legal gambling.

So it's clear why the film chose to ignore the problematic impact of the lottery and the toto on young people - because it is impossible to do without their advertising budget on TV (or in the newspaper that employs me), but the attempt to paint a social problem only in criminal shades highlighted hypocrisy ".

Dangerous Gambling, Network 13, 9:15 p.m.
