First of all, who knew that Starz Cinema letterboxes a lot of their movies and plays art films? I didn't until the other day. Welcome to my periphery, Starz Cinema.
Second of all, who would have thought that Dwight Eisenhower would be so highly touted by a left-wing Muckraker?
Third of all, I was a little disappointed that there were no John Wesley Harding songs in the movie.
Fourth of all, how did Jarecki get John McCain to say some of the stuff that he did? He basically is calling for Dick Cheney's shady dealings to be investigated. Nice. As soon as he said it though, he seemed to have regretted saying it and ended the interview.
This movie is pretty good. It is one of those films though that you know that the filmmaker had his thesis before starting the movie and damn made sure that he had the right interviews in place to prove his point. Not that there is anything wrong with that as long as you know what you are getting yourself into. But this is definitely a preaching to the converted kind of movie.
I'm curious to see Jareki's other documentary The Trials of Henry Kissinger.
