Well-researched, hair-raising investigation of capitalist thievery in Iraq at the expense of the American tax-payer, the GI's and the Iraqi people.

Cinema em Cena

Companheiro temático do excelente Shadow Company, o filme expõe de forma articulada a ganância pavorosa das grandes corporações, que não hesitam em sacrificar vidas e roubar o povo norte-americano com a cumplicidade do próprio governo.

| Original Score: 5/5

In 75 harrowing minutes, Greenwald spells out why the war has been, for this administration and its friends, a windfall no matter which side claims victory and how many Americans and Iraqi civilians die.

Sure, it won't be seen by the people most in need of seeing it, but it might just energize others into moving away from apathy born of a sense of helplessness.

If Greenwald can sneak this onto the air in place of this week's Desperate Housewives, we might start to see some changes around here.

Robert Greenwald, the man behind a slew of recent political documentaries ... compellingly probes the intersection of the public and private spheres in the Iraq war.

As a film, it has its share of problems, but as rabble rousing, it's a first rate rallying cry.

A credible indictment against corporations currently enjoying windfall profits thanks to the Iraq war.

Greenwald is skillful enough to spark a fresh sense of outrage.

there's an undeniable rage at work here which one has to hope would influence somebody of importance somewhere. There's always hope.

The doc successfully excoriates the role of private business in Iraq but lacks even a smidgen of Michael Moore's wit.

Whatever you might think about the centrality of the profit motive to our society, what's going on in Iraq is going to give you pause.

Iraq for Sale is one film with an agenda that maybe everybody can get behind.

Iraq for Sale isn't balanced or objective. It carries the torch for the families of civilians who died while driving unprotected trucks on unsafe routes.

While it doesn't deviate from the snippy, newsmagazine format of its predecessors, Iraq for Sale stays mostly on point and on target, as Greenwald trains his sights on the ruinous consequences of corporate involvement in the Iraq war.

Both a trenchant indictment of war profiteering in Iraq and a memorial for those not included in the military's death toll, Iraq for Sale is a work of intense disillusionment.
