All Critics (9) | Top Critics (4)

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

Top Critic

[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.

Top Critic

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.
