None of this, apart from the eventual naming of names, can be described as revelatory. Gibney's genius is less for uncovering information than synthesizing it in such a way that we can see the outlines of sinister conspiracies at work.
No Stone Unturned at times veers close to a rant.
Try as it might to build a sense of mystery out of the story, No Stone Unturned actually doesn't have that much intrigue to work with.
What Mr. Gibney uncovers is grave and shocking and could make a viewer concerned for the safety of the filmmaker. But its presentation is flawed.
An irresponsible and potentially dangerous postmortem of the still-unsolved 1994 pub shooting in Northern Ireland that left six Loughinisland residents dead.
Though we care for those who lost loved ones, and root for them as they pursue a decades-long hunt for the killers, No Stone Unturned plays like a very well made piece of true-crime television.
Gibney's film is undeniably flawed, but it's noble, and although it may only scratch the surface, will leave you invested enough to demand more answers.
Gibney lays out the facts of this unsolved case, interviews a vast array of people involved, and then follows the information to revelations both startling and comprehensive.
The film shows how corruption spreads outwards from supposedly righteous causes. The factual storytelling is strong, but Gibney's eye for stylised recreations is both ripe and unnecessary.
[No Stone Unturned] proffers sufficiently shocking revelations for the voices of those who have long campaigned for justice to no longer be ignored.
One gain is that the victims' story has been expertly told, and there is consolation in that.
It doesn't always work - some moments are a bit overcooked for comfort - but the results are pretty devastating, if at least closing some emotional doors for those scarred and bereaved by a night when death called to a small country pub.
