Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: A provocative look at what can happen when corporate power takes aim at independent film.
Fresh: A David-and Goliath story that delves into corporate scare tactics, legal effrontery, brand protection, media manipulation, online propagandizing and craven behavior.
Fresh: An eye-opening look at the way the U.S. media fell lockstep behind Dole's claims.
Rotten: The film's protests of censorship ring hollow given its selective version of the truth.
