Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Pessimistic, grimly outraged and utterly riveting ...
Rotten: Scahill's so busy Being A Reporter - capital letters are definitely called for - it gets in the way of what he's reporting on.
Fresh: It's shocking stuff, even if much of it has already been in the news. That's mostly because of the way that Scahill strings it together into a coherent, convincing argument.
Fresh: "Dirty Wars" becomes hard to swat away, no matter how much its style conveys a sense of unconscious insecurity about its assertions.
Was honored to attend one of the preview screenings of Dirty Wars here in NYC, along with a small crowd that included Jeremy Scahill, Michael Moore and Democracy Now. The way the story unfolds is so riveting by itself, but unlike many documentaries, this movie is so beautifully/artistically shot as well. A triumph for truth and indie documentary film making... and an absolute must see.
Jeremy Shahill Represents A Dying Bred Of Journalists
This award winning book and film are thought provoking and should be a first choice for anyone interested in the truth about America's current foreign policy and drone wars. The film allows the viewer to see how America's questionable policies and use of drones may be having exactly the reverse effect that CIA and military secretive war makers intended. It points out how these policies continue to enraged millions around the world and strengthened the hand of America's enemies. It uncovers what many would consider war crimes. Jeremy Shahill is a fearless impartial national treasure and a dying bred of journalist who still seeks to get to the bottom of a story and reveal the truth no matter how culturally unpopular it may end up being. 'Dirty Wars' helps to shines a bright fact filled light on US war making that many Americans would be surprise to know goes on in their name.
A brave film. A series of events and stories that should be shown to every American. Who would dare do this in the current NSA state we now live in? Very few journalists. I think of the effort to have right wing friends watch Fahrenheit 9/11 back when it was released. How many liberals that tuned out after 08 would be as nauseated as I after watching this. It's a hard journey, walking along w Scahill through this mess and wading through our atrocities scattered through places you will never hear about on network tv. It makes you look in the mirror and think of what your vote and tax money have accomplished for your 'Freedom', and wonder what horrible things are happening right now in its name..
It's a gripping , thought provoking film that you will still be thinking about when you go to bed
