2 September 2012 | by (Austin, Texas) – See all my reviews

The same as D,Souza I am a political conservative. With this said I do believe myself enough of a critical thinker to be able to decide if something like this is a hack piece, unfairly biased or lacking in credibility. I think most people know when they see something that is sensationalized for effect or made for the feeding frenzy of those of a particular ideology..myself included.

Instead of details I will just say that my expectations were exceeded and I came out more surprised than anticipated.I believe all fair minded people, regardless of party affiliation would benefit from being open minded enough to watch this movie. I thought to myself...would it be possible for anyone...even someone who is a Democrat/Liberal/Progressive...to watch this documentary and not be moved by the information presented. But then, in that same moment, I remembered the reality that this movie will be ignored by most people who identify with the political left. They will dismiss, without watching it, as a hit piece. That's a shame because I believe most citizens of this country would be disturbed after seeing this film.

A fair approach would be to see it then go about deciding for yourself.

It's a well made, well presented, truly compelling piece of work.
