Movie Info

Canadian Omar Khadr was 15 years old, a child soldier, when he was sent by his militant father to work with the Taliban in Afghanistan, assembling mines in an Al Qaeda compound. In 2002, he was captured by U.S. forces during a raid in which he was severely wounded and an American soldier was killed by a hand grenade. Omar was sent to Guantánamo and given the choice of pleading guilty to this murder and accepting an 8-year sentence, or contesting the charge and facing the possibility of life

What makes this film especially biting is the editing.

Worthy of 100 minutes of anyone's time.

What comes through repeatedly is that questions of law and reason, or guilt and innocence, played no role in the case of Omar Khadr.

Enlightening, compelling and, finally, heartbreaking.

[The film] demonstrates, through excerpts from an actual videotaped interrogation at Guantanamo, the process by which human will can be systematically broken down to force an admission of guilt, regardless of truth.

This film is narratively inert (we spend a lot of time listening to the same questions being asked over and over) and, like virtually all docs in its genre, less than vigorous in its pursuit of truth.

Another essential, damning indictment of America's torture policy.

It is an appalling tale of injustice that reflects badly on both the US administration that has incarcerated him and the Canadian government that has done nothing to seek his repatriation.

This almost unbearably painful documentary features what could be the most hateful villain to appear in the cinema this year. And he is just a disembodied voice.

Revealing injustice through Khadr's own words.

Secretly recorded footage from a Guantanamo Bay interrogation of 16-year-old Canadian citizen Omar Khadr forms the core of this compelling doc.

likely the most important film you will see this year.

Apart from shedding light on the dubious legality of the interrogation, You Don't Like The Truth forcefully questions its effectiveness in getting information.

Filmmakers Luc Côté and Patricio Henriquez don't use flashy tricks to tug heartstrings-instead they put faith in the story they're telling. And what a story it is.

Omar the martyr overwhelms Omar the human being in this ultimately dry and overtly biased attempt at cinematic protest.

Audiences will not "like the truth" that this newly declassified footage of a Guantanamo detainee reveals, although the title actually refers to the interrogators of 15-year-old Omar Khadr who deny the obvious truth of their prisoner's predicament.

...[a] precise, impassioned portrait of post-9/11 collateral damage.
