  1. Haunting music, the seriousness of the allegations and riveting interviews with Alexander Haig, Christopher Hitchens (whose book inspired the film) and others give "Kissinger" extra drama and urgency.
  2. Pungent, opinionated, outspoken.
  3. Makes compelling, provocative and prescient viewing. You can draw your own conclusions.
  4. 88
    Puts you on edge about what goes on behind the closed doors of the White House. Even if the case against Kissinger is not fully convincing, the documentary keeps you glued to your seat and thinking long after you've left the theater.
  5. The Trials of Henry Kissinger serves as both a prosecution brief on the above charges and an unauthorized biography.
  6. 88
    In ''Trials,'' Hitchens is almost endearing, stalking Kissinger from one event to the next like a bleary-eyed Michael Moore.
  7. 88
    The movie never undercuts his brilliance and his unexpected charisma. No matter how high his degree of malevolence, he cuts a bigger figure after you see the movie than he did before.
