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.
There's enough mystery and agony here for an engaging documentary, but Rossier fails to produce one, largely because he doesn't approach the material in the spirit of true inquiry.
The fascinating thing about this particular documentary is that, despite its ostensible subject (the eponymous deposed president), the film engages the more important and pressing issues that underlie Aristide's presidency and his removal.
As a window into our country's right-wing attitudes about emerging democracies, the film is particularly timely.
Makes a strong statement and brings to light important reportage with a straightforward yet persuasive style.
Despite his clear sympathies, Rossier makes some effort to address allegations by his opponents of corruption and even political murder by Aristide's forces.
... Rossier's film leaves the dispiriting impression that democracy simply will not be tolerated in the Southern Hemisphere.
Aristide and the Endless Revolution is a probing look into the 2004 overthrow of the twice democratically elected Haitian president Jean-Bertrand Aristide ...
