If anything it also shows that dissent is a far gone notion in our modern society...

Director Anthony Giacchino doesn't always relate the tale in the clearest fashion, but his sometimes overly emotional approach... doesn't detract from its essential fascination.

Until a worthwhile dramatized version of the Camden 28 comes along, this dutiful documentary will suffice.

When it comes to political agitation, the Camden 28 are genuine heroes and deserve to be recognized for what they dared to achieve.

Times have changed, but many of the questions remain the same: How far would you go to stop a war you felt was unjust? Would you break the law if you felt that law to be by nature unlawful?

[Giacchino's] sympathy for his subjects, their cause and the tradition of Christian pacifism is evident yet doesn't cloud the storytelling as he defies viewers not to stand in admiration and ask tough questions of themselves.

The Camden 28 not only examines the animating forces of protest, but also the nature of betrayal, forgiveness and, ultimately, compassion.

With a brisk narrative that blends intrigue, tension, pathos and humor, Anthony Giacchino's absorbing look back at a New Jersey antiwar group's early-'70s arrest and trial is closer to living history than dry, academic harangue.

WBAI Web Radio

In revisiting the oppressive measures employed by the FBI during that era, the viewer is treated to a welcome message about the right, if not the duty, to challenge authority, especially in the face of corruption, intransigence and utter arrogance.

A documentary about a watershed trial in 1973 of some anti-war activists from the Catholic Left who took a stand on the basis of conscience.

Fond, stinging, and finally instructive, the film assembles a comprehensive look back at the actions, arrest, and prosecution of a group of political malcontents (most of them young Catholics and some of them priests) in the summer of 1971.

While no one will mistake director Anthony Giacchino for Michael Moore, the documentarian unfolds the drama of the arrest and eventual not guilty verdict of 28 Vietnam War protesters in 1971.

Giacchino has created a film in which every practical question has ethical implications...The Camden 28 opens our thinking to the values and calculations which guided these noble activists and their equally noble attorneys.
