An insightful examination of the controversial School of the Americas, director John Smihula's Hidden in Plain Sight offers a rare look inside the U.S.-based military training school where such notorious figures as Manuel Noriega learned their trade. Over the course of its history, the Fort Benning, GA, school for Latin soldiers has provided training for more than 60,000 military personnel. Hidden in Plain Sight is narrated by actor and political activist Martin Sheen.


Critic Reviews for Hidden in Plain Sight

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (4)

Anti-Army propaganda rather than a balanced piece of reporting.

Nov 7, 2003 | Rating: 2/4

[Hidden in Plain Sight] brings together material from several politically engaged films about the government's activity in Latin America, creating a sort of anthology of atrocity.

A worthy title for cable nets scheduling hard-hitting documentary fare.

Nov 5, 2003

Won't sway anyone on the right, and for those on the left, in its narrow aim of tripping up General LeMoyne and his ilk, it is frustratingly naive.

An informative and necessary political documentary.
