The documentary, Nanking, is quite pweorful and uses an interesting blend of contemporary film, current interviews, and dramatization. The dramatization doesn't attempt to recreate events, but consists of actors speaking the words (from letters and diaries) of the several Westerners who attempted to maintain a safety zone for the civilian population. We hear their personal commentary and day by day accounts of events mixed with the horrific film images taken secretly with great courage of the occupation. I thought it a very effective way to bring immediacy and humanity to the historical record. And you don't have to wonder how much is really real in that based on real events' disclaimer.
