The strength of the documentary comes from its ability to tell the victims stories so clearly and profoundly.
March 3, 2019
This extraordinary film offers renewed hope to the survivors and victims of terrorist atrocities that have been left unsolved by authorities.
February 21, 2019
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.
February 21, 2019
A gripping documentary that gives a horrifying glimpse into innocent lives being let down by the justice system, and will leave you shaking your head in disbelief for a long time after.
May 5, 2018
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.
April 24, 2018
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.
December 27, 2017
[No Stone Unturned] proffers sufficiently shocking revelations for the voices of those who have long campaigned for justice to no longer be ignored.
November 22, 2017
One gain is that the victims' story has been expertly told, and there is consolation in that.
November 16, 2017
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.
November 15, 2017
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.
November 14, 2017
Uncovers level of government impunity that should change how law enforcement works with intelligence services, though the implications of broader applicability get lost here.
November 13, 2017
Gibney's film honours the persistence of those families who have campaigned with great dignity for over two decades to see justice done.
November 12, 2017
Scrupulously even-handed, the film explores collusion between police and paramilitaries and the decidedly unstable foundations underpinning the Northern Ireland peace process.
November 10, 2017
It's great that O'Toole and the others get a platform. But one can't help but wish that platform was a little more pleasingly movie-shaped. There's some good journalism here, particularly from The Detail's Barry McCaffrey, nonetheless.
November 10, 2017
A must-see for anyone craving a refresher course in Troubles history.
November 9, 2017
... a suspenseful mystery with chilling twists, striking the balance between provocative and tactful that is his hallmark. Fearlessness and a commitment to truth is what's needed for pieces demanding justice from power like this.
November 7, 2017
To those familiar with the Irish Troubles, this is a familiar and dispiriting tale of lies, betrayals and cover-ups leading to the upper reaches of the British government.
November 6, 2017
Provides a measure of closure for the families involved, but offers no easy answers.
November 3, 2017
It's a gripping story well-told, thanks to the tense, frightening score, the sparse but effective reenactments of the event, and Gibney's intimate narration, done less as an authority than a partner, or confidant.
October 26, 2017
A gripping and thoroughly well told story, which is likely to bring closure to all those who waited for their story to be told for the last twenty years.
