    Nothing But the Truth is like listening to the fourth-best debater in middle school present a term paper called "Politics, Power and the Media."

    An excellent, intelligent flick with great acting by Kate that highlights the loss of democracy in the war-mongering U.S.

    Not believable. It assumes that the Federal Prosecutor is a noble American trying to uncover the identity of an American traitor which is OK for a movie but since it is based on real life where federal prosecutors did not even make the slightest attempt to find the traitor the overall effect is one of nauseau. A good propaganda film for Bush Cheney fans. Full Review »

    The interesting story would have been so much better with a stronger actress in the lead role. It is over Kate Beckinsale's acting abilities. The rest of the cast is great though. Always interesting. Full Review »
