Storyline

There are years when nothing happens and then days that change the course of History. From September 2002 to May 2003 we met with intellectuals, journalists, university professors, writers, historians, political analysts, international observers, human rights organizations, civil rights fighters, religious leaders, peace and anti war activists, asking questions to understand these years in which we are living and try to put together the many pieces of a complicated puzzle. The picture that comes alive is - to paraphrase James Baldwin - "longer, larger, more various, more beautiful, and more terrible than anything anyone has ever said about it". 2000 Presidential Elections and September 11, 2001. Afghanistan, Iraq, terrorism and weapons of mass destruction. Saddam Hussein and the inspections. The axis of evil, the coalition of the willing and collateral damages. News, media, concentrations of power and censorship. The Middle East and the old and new colonialism. Civil liberties and ... Written by The Cat's Dream

About as powerful and important a documentary as has ever been made.
16 February 2006 | by rickconradSee all my reviews

Oh my God!!

As I watched this film, I celebrated its existence and prayed fiercely that it would reach as many people as possible. Afterwards, I sent emails out all over the place, to tell everyone I could about it.

Like The Corporation before it, and Michael Moore's many great films, this is pure cinematic courage and raw, ripe, truth power.

If the Bush / Cheney administration and their fellow criminals must keep on destroying innocent lives all over the world, at least we will have this palliative treatment for some good hearted and sensible folks.

UTTERLY MAGNIFICENT!
