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.

...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.
| Original Score: 3/5

Katie Galloway and Kelly Duane de la Vega's documentary doesn't let its duped young crusaders entirely off the hook.

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.

It says more than almost everything airing in the period around the 10th anniversary of 9/11.

Katie Galloway and Kelly Duane's nonfiction account is eerily suggestive -- and alarming.

Better This World delivers a chilling depiction of loyalty, naivete, political zealotry and the post-9/11 security state.
