Little White Lies

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

Observer [UK]

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.

Peter Bradshaw

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.

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

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

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

Boxoffice Magazine

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.

Top Critic IconTop Critic

[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.

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

You Don't Like the Truth focuses on the pathetic manipulations of Canadian intelligence officers as they interrogate Toronto-born Omar Khadr, the youngest prisoner held in Guantánamo Bay.

This doc raises enough questions about the ends justifying the means during an era of endless war that it earns the right to be called essential viewing.

Maria Garcia
Film Journal International

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.
