    A potent, persuasive and quietly furious documentary.

    Fatal Assistance is a chilling indictment of how billions of dollars in aid were squandered or lost, and how aid and politics are inextricably linked.

    Fatal Assistance is a powerful indictment of the aid process, though Peck lets Haitian politicos off too lightly, and the voiceovers would be better on paper.

    Peck's documentary is not a penetrating look at at Haiti's post-quake problems, but a scattered, impressionistic one.

    Fatal Assistance has few answers, and adds little clarity.
