Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Pessimistic, grimly outraged and utterly riveting ... – Stephen Holden, New York Times, Jun 6, 2013

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. – Mark Feeney, Boston Globe, Jun 13, 2013

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. – Michael O'Sullivan, Washington Post, Jun 7, 2013

Fresh: "Dirty Wars" becomes hard to swat away, no matter how much its style conveys a sense of unconscious insecurity about its assertions. – Steven Boone, Chicago Sun-Times, Jun 13, 2013

Customer Reviews

This was NOT journalism... or documentary on the GWOT.

Half the shots were of Jeremy Scahills face. It was also narrated by him, where he referred to himself in the first person more than anything or anyone else. It was also either very poorly researched or intentionally misleading... though it was certainly almost dramatized beyond belief. Two tragic incidents and an irresponsible glossing over of al-Awlaki role in 9-11 does not responsible “reporting” make.

There are plenty of (f)actual documentaries out there that are plenty (and fairly) critical America’s choices in the the war on terror... and to be honest, they are far more shocking. Though the worst (in terms of moral content) deal with the Afghan National Police and Army.

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.

Self-Congratulatory Drivel

Absolutely do not waste your time or money on this self-aggrandizing so-called documentary.
