Movie Info

Erik Gandini and Tarik Saleh's documentary Gitmo: The New Rules of War offers a look at the prisoners of war held at the infamous military base in Guantanamo. The directors follow all of the military approved channels for discussing what goes on at the camp, interviewing soldiers stationed there unless the higher ups end an interview due to sensitive subject matter. The directing duo augment this footage with some investigative work explaining how private contractors, immune from such codes of behavior like The Geneva Conventions, are brought in to handle interrogation techniques. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi


Critic Reviews for Gitmo

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (2)

It's upsetting, intriguing and somehow incomplete.

Jul 7, 2006 | Rating: B-

Resembles a collage more than a iron-clad essay, and its strength comes in set-pieces.

Jul 7, 2006 | Rating: 2.5/4

The banality of evil meets moronic zeal.

Even if the whole doesn't click as tightly as it should, the individual pieces shock enough on their own.

For such an important subject; it's too bad this documentary isn't more rock-solid

Though not flashy or 'big,' GITMO is a stark, blunt, powerful indictment.
