Borders - sham and fact?

US horror movie Hostel (2006) - presented by Quentin Tarantino, directed by Eli Roth, During its opening weekend in the US, it opened in the No.1 position.
More information: wikipedia.org/hostel

The movie is set in Bratislava, Slovakia - it portrays Slovakia as an undeveloped, poor and uncultured country suffering from high criminality and prostitution. Eli Roth has defended his work and commented "Americans do not even know that this country exists. My film is not a geographical work but aims to show Americans' ignorance of the world around them".

And reality? Look QTVR panorama from March 21, 2006, mind your eye ;-)
