This is chilling stuff, worthy of the most cunning of fictional thrillers but all too horrifyingly real...

Basically preaching to the choir, of course. But that doesn't mean that the sermon isn't one that needs to be heard.

Condoleeza Rice says: "Saddam Hussein cavorts with terrorists."

It should also be required viewing for thoughtful hawks; Greenwald's restrained approach won't insult their intelligence, and will give them plenty to chew over.

Despite its slant, the movie offers some illuminating details, and director Robert Greenwald constructs a solid argument that the Iraq war was driven more by expedient politics than facts.
| Original Score: 3.5/5

Unrolls like an American tragedy...If you thought Fahrenheit 9/11 burned the Bush administration, Uncovered pours gasoline on the flames.
Boo Allen

Director Greenwald backs up his claim that the media acted like Bush administration lap dogs in covering the lead-up to a bogus war.

Uncovered has no interest in explaining the Bush administration's case for war for them: This is the prosecution's argument, and it is extremely well-made.

This documentary makes an effective argument that isn't likely to spur much debate, despite the efforts of the filmmakers to do just that.

Nothing in Uncovered: The War on Iraq will change your opinion, but it may give you bullet points to back up your cocktail-party arguments.

If you've ever wondered why we got into the Iraq war and what still faces us there, this is the film that can explain it to you (even if you agree with Bush's policies).
| Original Score: 3/4

Clearheaded, practical and plenteous in evidence but smart and confident enough not to berate you.

For those who want facts (or at least authoritative opinions) rather than flash and bluster, Uncovered is for you.

Methodically presents the Bush Administration's rationale for invading the Iraq and then systematically dismantles it.

August 27, 2004
A rather redundant shredder, President Bush's war policy having shredded itself. But in force and focus this sober indictment is devastating.

Jonathan Curiel
San Francisco Chronicle

A thorough indictment of the Bush administration's focus on Iraq.

Starts in an unusually calm and measured way for a documentary critical of that particular military adventure. All antiwar docs, it turns out, are not cut from the same cloth.
