From the dealer to the narcotics officer, the inmate to the federal judge, a penetrating look inside America's criminal justice system, revealing the profound human rights implications of U.S. drug policy.
Mark W. Bennett
Part contemporary investigation and part historical inquiry, documentary follows the quest of one journalist in search of justice. The film focuses on Christopher Hitchens' charges against Henry Kissinger as a war criminal - allegations documented in Hitchens' book of the same title - based on his role in countries such as Cambodia, Chile, and Indonesia. Kissinger's story raises profound questions about American foreign policy and highlights a new era of human rights. Increasing evidence about one man's role in a long history of human rights abuses leads to a critical examination of American diplomacy through the lens of international standards of justice.Written by

Was Kissinger a brilliant diplomat - or a heartless killer?
Here is a documentary that outright accuses Henry Kissinger of being a war criminal and mass murderer. The film itself is a mix of historical footage and interviews with famous journalists/commentators. It could have been more nuanced, and only Alexander Haig comes to the statesman's defense, but Kissinger certainly comes across as duplicitous and very interested in promoting himself.
