Frank Miller’s Xerxes
Germans, Russians, Japanese and Arabs all had the misfortune of being on the wrong side of political avengers. Some of the movies made about these cultures depict them as half-witted savages; the movies use fabricated and distorted historical events. What makes Persians (Iranians) any different?
Xerxes (Khashayar) was born around 520 BCE in the southern province of Persis (Fars). He was a powerful king who ruled Achaemenid (Persian) Empire from 486-465 BCE. Xerxes was Darius The Great‘s eldest son by Queen Atosa (daughter of Cyrus The Great). He had been designated official heir perhaps as early as 498 BCE, and while crown prince he had ruled as the King’s governor in Babylon.
Questions: Who is supporting these trashes —Frank Miller’s Xerxes— made in the name of entertainment? The members of the public pays for these fabricated malicious lies. They pay for the trashes. Who are the generators of these trash movies? Who are the shadowy figures behind the screens?
Frank Miller’s Xerxes is a trash fabricated as entertainment.
Who benefits from declaring war on these cultures?
