    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.

    A move that would be hilariously absurd if it weren't so scary.

    This film is designed to turn your stomach and make you feel ashamed of your fellow man.
  6. A worthy title for cable nets scheduling hard-hitting documentary fare
  7. 50
    The result is anti-Army propaganda rather than a balanced piece of reporting.
  8. 50
    A sober, focused piece that asks Americans to take another look at what is going on in their own backyard.

    A relentless excoriation of the School of the Americas.
  10. 40
    Nods at objectivity but announces its activist intentions throughout.
