Storyline

The 1995 bombing in Oklahoma City was a direct blow to the heart of America. 168 people were killed, including nineteen children. For those watching the nightly news, terrorism had come home. For years following the bombing, countless victims' family members, survivors, rescuers, and ordinary Americans, have questioned the official accounts about that fateful day. Hoping to shed light on answers long ignored and censored, both by prominent media outlets and the U.S. government, A Noble Lie peels back what we thought we knew about the bombing and it's perpetrators. This film exposes information never before examined or brought to the attention of the American public. A Noble Lie is the culmination of years of research and documentation conducted by independent journalists, scholars, and ordinary citizens. Often risking their personal safely and sanity, they have gathered evidence which threatens to expose the startling reality of what exactly occurred at 9:02 am on April 19, 1995 in ...

Well Done
26 June 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was very impressed with the way A Noble Lie tells the story of the OKC bombing. The film makers don't use cheesy sound fx, savvy editing or the like to add fluff here. Any documentary that does usually means the content is not strong enough to rest on its own. That is not the case with this one.

A Noble Lie uses physical evidence, eye witness testimony, media reports, and court documents to allow the viewer to come to their own conclusion. All in all it was very informative, and did not pile on too much at the same time. I would like to see some things discussed more in detail, like Tim McVeigh's interviews in prison, and I'm hearing a sequel is in the works, so hopefully that happens.

Any person with a critical eye that likes to think for themselves, I recommend checking this one out.
