Terrible disappointment
30 September 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

It's a shame that this doc doesn't work because the subject matter of this movie is extremely timely, important and interesting. But, ultimately, the tone of this film is so uneven and the talking heads become so redundant that it becomes unbearable to watch by the end. It's basically two hours of people saying "NOBODY LISTENED" over and over and over again.

It doesn't help that the protagonist comes off as an absolute loon, and his ongoing paranoia seems ridiculous. Maybe that's not the filmmakers' fault. But if that isn't their fault, they are to blame for sticking a maudlin, "this guy is a true hero" bit at the end that is laughable to the audience after hearing his paranoid gibberish for the previous half an hour.
