Dirty Wars is challenging in a way few films are.

ReelTalk Movie Reviews

This documentary is at least in theory non-political and not intended as overview of the past thirteen years. Instead, the filmmakers insist, it captures a moment in time on a downward spiral.

An infuriating and depressing look at how American foreign policy and warfare have been transformed in highly undemocratic ways, and a reminder of what real journalism looks like.

"Dirty Wars" may lack the nuance and design of an Errol Morris documentary, but it is nonetheless the most important and searing documentary of 2013. See it. Talk about it.

Laramie Movie Scope

This is a very disturbing film. From a journalistic point of view, it would be better to have more documentation for the claims made in this film, but enough evidence is presented to raise concerns about these secret wars.

Not quite as tight as it needs to be, especially when it comes to building links between its various strands, this is nevertheless an intriguing documentary which contains some powerful interview material.

This is London

A tense, shocking US documentary that plays out like an episode of The Wire, though in this case it's not a war on drugs that's being fought (and lost), but the war on terror.

Government sanctioned atrocities and journalist Jeremy Scahill fight for top billing in this investigative doc.

The movie has rather silly, Bourne-style thriller graphics, which are unnecessary: it has an important story to tell.

Grolsch Film Works

offers geopolitical exposition & humanist perspective on a nation's hidden & entirely unregulated foreign policy, seemingly designed to create ever more enemies for the US in an expanding global war that is kept out of view, with no end in sight.

... though I have certain qualms about the way Scahill is presented in the film ... I cannot imagine that a more compelling film could have been made without his character carrying this dramatic payload.

"Dirty Wars" becomes more than the sum of its facts, illuminating not just the secret wars but the emotional toll that trying to uncover them takes on Scahill.
