Uncovered: The War in Iraq
Source: Catholic News Service
Candidly critical documentary which both chronicles and deconstructs the Bush administration's grounds for going to war with Iraq following the tragic events of Sept. 11, 2001, alleging that the president misled and deceived the American public in order to rally support through misinformation which exaggerated the threat Saddam Hussein's regime posed to national security. Filmed with detached passion by Robert Greenwald, the film is, by turns, insightful and incendiary -- though ultimately one-sided -- in methodically making its case, relying on straightforward talking-head interviews with intelligence experts, former CIA operatives and weapons analysts which are juxtaposed with contrapuntal news footage. Some war images. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-II -- adults and adolescents. Not rated by the Motion Picture Association of America.
