Narrator: The United States of America: rich, diverse, well-fed, proud, free. The United States of America: poor, hungry, scared, oppressed. There are those who say the United States is an empire, a dictatorship possessing fascistic elements.

Powerful documentary that should be seen by everyone
19 August 2004 | by (Twin Lakes, WI) – See all my reviews

With all of the furor and publicity over Michael Moore's "Fahrenheit 9/11", it is sad that Christine Rose's film has been overlooked. In many ways it is a much stronger film than Moore's. Hopefully, she will find a wider distribution soon.

Rose could not have picked better commentators for her documentary. Michael Parenti and Howard Zinn are two of the finest writers/speakers/scholars today. Her investigation of the loss of civil liberties in the post-9/11 world is strong material. Zinn and Parenti help frame her video segments to present a disturbing picture of what is happening to liberty in America.

For a first film, "Liberty Bound" is really well done. The editing and sequencing are effective. If you decide to watch it you won't be disappointed. It is an excellent, thoughtful documentary that should be seen by all Americans.
