Exceptionally well constructed and convincing.
13 July 2012 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

"La Batalla de Chile: La Lucha de un Pueblo Sin Armas" is the first of three documentaries that deal with the illegal ouster of the leftist government of Chile as well as the subsequent murder and persecution of the supporters of this legitimately elected regime. While I ideologically think communism is not the answer to a nation's ills, this film worked to convince me of the rightness of their position--making it an extremely effective documentary. And, while in many ways I am proud to be an American, I realize that the film was correct in its assessment in the US government in this affair--when our nation SHOULD always support self-determination regardless of political orientation. So, whether or not it made me uncomfortable, it was VERY effective. I also was blown away at the ending of the film, as you realize the horrible danger and costs involved in making the film. The bottom line is that the film is exceptionally well made, challenging and compelling. See this one.
