Questioning the authority of documentaries
29 February 2004 | by (Middle East) – See all my reviews

This is a film that will change the way you look at documentaries and their authenticity. Afterall, it is not difficult to prove that Stanley Kubrick was involved in a shady deal with NASA and the Nixon administration to fabricate a story about man's first trip to the moon.

Don't want to spoil the fun, so I am not saying more... after watching it, just ask your self one question: what if news channels do this on a daily basis?

A must see!

Rating: 10/10
