The torture techniques deployed in the war on terror come under the microscope in this documentary. The film revolves around the a quest to discover what happened to a man named Mehdi, who was held in Guantanamo Bay, but also incorporates thoughts from former Gitmo prisoners and officers who worked in the notorious Abu Ghraib facility in Iraq.

No Friends? Inconceivable! Log in to see what your friends have to say.
Gandini and Saleh slowly show how one revelation leads to another, and how in the end this method of journalistic inquiry paints a disturbing picture of U.S. policy in Guantanamo.
It's upsetting, intriguing and somehow incomplete.
Resembles a collage more than a iron-clad essay, and its strength comes in set-pieces.
Even if the whole doesn't click as tightly as it should, the individual pieces shock enough on their own.
For such an important subject; it's too bad this documentary isn't more rock-solid
Though not flashy or 'big,' GITMO is a stark, blunt, powerful indictment.
