Better This World delivers a chilling depiction of loyalty, naivete, political zealotry and the post-9/11 security state.
A case of solid journalism that happens to be cinematically interesting.
Sharply focused and superbly put together.
Katie Galloway and Kelly Duane's nonfiction account is eerily suggestive -- and alarming.
It says more than almost everything airing in the period around the 10th anniversary of 9/11.
As Better This World puts together the pieces of Brad Crowley and David McKay's stories, it appears they weren't always aware of what was going on around them.
...less a case of highwire drama than a punishing stumble into a looking-glass world where criminals are made so that they can be undone.
Better This World conveys the helplessness and hopelessness of what it's like to get caught in a system that, the film argues, values appearance over facts.
Katie Galloway and Kelly Duane de la Vega's documentary doesn't let its duped young crusaders entirely off the hook.
My Dad would have liked this film as a caution against undertaking some of the protesting that I did in my youth. A bunch of idealistic kids are taken under the wing of a group leader and FBI informant and the question becomes whether or not they were led into performing actions that they wouldn't otherwise have taken. A very fascinating look at the interpretation of anti-terrorism legislation in the U.S.
in the tradition of communist witch hunts and infiltrating the civil rights movement, your tax dollars at work. streaming here until october 6 in the US --http://www.pbs.org/pov/betterthisworld/full.php
