    John H. Smihula's compelling video documentary aims for both hearts and minds.
  2. Though Army officials vigorously defend the school, after watching so many grim interviews with victims of the school's alumni, agreeing with Smihula's skepticism is finally unavoidable.
  3. The producers of Hidden in Plain Sight decided that they couldn't deal with Sept. 11 in the film without losing focus on its principal subject. The result is that the film stands as a testimonial to the world as it existed before that date, a world very different from the one we now live in.
  4. 70
    This film is designed to turn your stomach and make you feel ashamed of your fellow man.
  5. Reviewed by: Ken Fox
    A move that would be hilariously absurd if it weren't so scary.
  6. A worthy title for cable nets scheduling hard-hitting documentary fare
  7. Reviewed by: Ken Eisner
    A relentless excoriation of the School of the Americas.
  8. 50
    A sober, focused piece that asks Americans to take another look at what is going on in their own backyard.
  9. 50
    The result is anti-Army propaganda rather than a balanced piece of reporting.
  10. 40
    Nods at objectivity but announces its activist intentions throughout.
