High schooler Greg, who spends most of his time making parodies of classic movies with his co-worker Earl, finds his outlook forever altered after befriending a classmate who has just been diagnosed with cancer.
Relying on commentary by those in-the-know, 'america's secret warriors' paints a frighteningly candid portrait of the practices, history, and power of the CIA. levin avoids sensationalizing or over-simplifying, and raises more questions than he answers -- as a good documentary should. the final shot of a 747 taking off while the voice-over describes the fears of the imminent blowback created by the USA's involvement in the middle east is truly chilling.
marc levin is one of the most important documentarians today (see: soldiers in the army of god; gladiator days; the last party; the protocols of zion -- also slam). the discovery channel produced and presented this program. the night it aired, levin apparently received several phone calls from the likes of dick gregory and oliver stone, all saying "great job. now watch your back." discovery channel only aired the program once, and although it was released on video, it went out of print very quickly.
