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

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.

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

House Next Door

...a living testament to American callousness toward norms of international justice and the likelihood of reaping future enemies from the scapegoats among the interned.

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.

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.

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.

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

For once, no one rants, and, in the relative calm, the tone can be heard, so muted and sad.

The split-screen format allows the real-life footage to sit alongside context offered by lawyers and psychiatrists.

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.
