Aristide and the Endless Revolution (2005)
Critic Reviews for Aristide and the Endless Revolution
While the film's real-life twists and turns are difficult to follow, the human desperation it depicts is all too easy to grasp.
The movie is rich with powerful supporting imagery, cogent conspiratorial information, and damning C-Span congressional footage.
A vital if less than objective slice of film journalism on the U.S.'s troubled history in the Third World.
Director Nicolas Rossier gives significant time to the disloyal opposition.
Although the film presents the complicated story in sometimes confusing fashion, it ultimately provides a highly informational account of the events leading up to the separate coups.
Audience Reviews for Aristide and the Endless Revolution
This movie is a great introduction to the issues currently plaguing Haiti. I liked that people of all opinions are included...very informative.
Excellent, and infuriating. It's interesting that there's a review that says this movie is balanced because I think the anti-Aristide people look like fools. And Aristide is so cute....his eyes....oh it's like Thom Yorke from Radiohead. "Philippe is more American than Aristide, baby / Despite the fact that Aristide was elected / Philippe recognizes the voice of power and he respects it" - Son of Nun
A critical look at the role international denial of foreign aid has on Haiti, and in particular former president Aristide. The most recent denial of foreign aid (over 3 consecutive years) builds on over 200 years of embargos and financial manipulation by external forces, since Haiti fought to become the first free country in 1804, challenging the hypocrisy present in the Enlightenment which called for freedom for the bourgeoisie in France, but kept quiet on slavery in the colonies. A must see movie!
