"Control Room" acknowledges wartime journalism sits between objectivity and propaganda, indifference and passion. Neutrality doesn't exist; to avoid gore is a stance. In a way, it's TV's true reality - the impossibility of objective footage of horror.

Is simply up to what all journalists should be about in the face of a corporatized, monolithic media - ruffling feathers. This advisory couldn't have come sooner.

Em um ano que gerou ótimos filmes como F9/11, Bush's Brain, The Hunting of the President e Outfoxed, este ainda se destaca como o mais eloqüente.

[E]xplodes the myth of objectivity... [but] leaves you with the very hopeful feeling that there's a wide middle ground that has room for all perspectives.

Movies don't reveal the truth, but good ones like this can provide an intimate and nuanced glimpse at some alternative reality.

Yes, the filmmakers ultimately lean left, but it's the U.S. military's PR guy, Josh Rushing, who stands out as the strongest and most likable personality.

Iraqis don't question the military power of the U.S., but rightly have plenty of evidence to question its wisdom

It might at least make you stop and think the next time you hear something on the news that's presented as gospel.

In the words of an Al Jazeera producer: 'Rumsfeld calls this ''incitement.'' I call it true journalism.'

Noujaim has done better than most of us at being in the right places at the right times to catch the imperial machinery in its most vulnerable, damning moments.

Star Newspapers (Chicago, IL)

Bush and Rumsfeld have called Al-Jazeera "the mouthpiece of Osama Bin-Laden." You might find truth to that statement next to Saddam Hussein's weapons of mass destruction.

Lieutenant Josh Rushing emerges as a voice of reason, a moral arbiter between al-Jazeera and Fox News.

Noujaim's viewers will learn little new about the inner workings of Al Jazeera, its philosophy, or its influence on its 40 million viewers.

Takes us behind the scenes at the much-maligned -- but much-watched -- Al-Jazeera before and during the war, and the result is fascinating and revelatory.
