Critic Reviews

  1. 80
    A comprehensive and devastating critique of the TV news networks' complacency and complicity in the war on Iraq.
  2. It's impossible to take in all the information in one sitting and at times threatens to spin off in too many directions, but I guarantee this movie will provide plenty to mull over and inspire consumers to demand greater accountability from their media purveyors.
  3. 75
    Engrossing and provocative.
  4. 70
    Highlights how far we've fallen.
  5. 50
    This indignant attack on the way the Iraqi war was marketed and covered feels about as timely and relevant as yesterday's newspaper.
  6. A 98-minute elucidation of a point that's accepted within three minutes.
  7. 50
    Schechter has a broad sub-Chomskian critique of the media's complicity in building support for Operation Iraqi Freedom.
  8. 50
    Unfortunately, his (Schechter) uneven, unpolished documentary, WMD: Weapons of Mass Deception, takes on far too many antagonists.
