Storyline

(T)ERROR is the first documentary to place filmmakers on the ground during an active FBI counterterrorism sting operation. Through the perspective of "Shariff", a 63-year-old Black revolutionary turned informant, viewers get an unfettered glimpse of the government's counterterrorism tactics and the murky justifications behind them. Taut, stark and controversial, (T)ERROR illuminates the fragile relationships between individual and surveillance state in modern America, and asks who is watching the watchers. Written by David Felix Sutcliffe

They're Not Telling The Full Story
12 December 2018 | by elkellyjrSee all my reviews

Massive amounts of information were omitted from this "story", which is all it is. It's not a documentary as documentaries are based on facts. This is based off spin and it's obvious the "artists" came into this with bias. It was a total waste of time in what seamed like could be a decent "documentary". I would recommend finding something else to watch if you're interested in a good documentary.
