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

Another jab at the Bush Administration
12 December 2007 | by (usa) – See all my reviews

Robert Taicher's documentary "Rush to War" follows the viewer into a post-9/11 world as it happened and quite efficiently became an Iraq War. In a Michael Moore sort of in-your-face fashion he travels America looking for answers, reactions, and perspective on those historic events from citizens, public figures, and others, including Chilean filmmaker Alejandro Jodorowsky. It is the recurrence of the latter's point-of-view that unsettles much of the foundation of the film. Even though the film introduces additional information about shady Washington dealings that occurred prior to September 2001, plenty of eerie quotes from the U.S.'s leaders, among other shiny gems that bruise even the most avid current events documentary viewer's sense of pessimism, Taicher seems to have no sense of who to interview about what topic. "Rush to War" is nonetheless an interesting and unnerving documentary to add to the warehouse full of films that have unfortunately spent a lot of time preaching to the proverbial choir.
