Storyline

In today's post-9/11 world, director Robert Taicher searches for the rationale behind the war in Iraq, exploring the failed policies of several administrations in an expertly crafted full-length documentary. What he presents is a raw, provocative look into America's "War on Terror" and its effect on our society, our credibility, and most importantly, our security. As America fights the wrong war at the wrong time, comes a riveting eye-opener. The right film at the right time. Written by Echo Bridge Home Entertainment

Fascinating, sometimes profound
26 August 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Rush To War is one of the better Iraq war documentaries out there. It is a shame that this film is rarely seen (only 62 votes as of this writing). Taicher's documentary doesn't really provide anything we haven't heard before. However, the talking heads in the documentary are some of my personal favorites. Noam Chomsky (my favorite political philosopher), Howard Zinn, Molly Ivins, George McGovern (strongly recommend his book "Out of Iraq: A Plan for Withdrawal Now"), Chris Hedges, and even Tom Friedman makes an appearance. Although inferior to Michael Moore's Fahrenheit 9/11, "Rush to War" is a must see for all liberals, moderates, or people with some common sense. The DVD has a lengthy interview with Joe Wilson (Valerie Plame's husband) as a fascinating special feature.

Note: IMDb shows this movie as being 61 minutes, but my DVD runs 86.

I give this film an 8/10, and it doesn't get higher only because all the information in this film is available elsewhere.
