Movie Info

On April 19, 1995, Timothy McVeigh, a former soldier deeply influenced by the literature and ideas of the radical right, parked a Ryder truck with a five-ton fertilizer bomb in front of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal building in Oklahoma City. Moments later, 168 people were killed and 675 were injured in the blast. OKLAHOMA CITY traces the events--including the deadly encounters between American citizens and law enforcement at Ruby Ridge and Waco--that led McVeigh to commit the worst act of domestic terrorism in American history. With a virulent strain of anti-government anger still with us, the film is both a cautionary tale and an extremely timely warning.

  • Its cumulative impact surpasses what you would expect from your typical Frontline or American Experience production, and colors in the rest of the white supremacist hierarchy in a terrifying and informative manner.

  • "Oklahoma City" suggests that conspiracy theories today have consequences for tomorrow - a message with terrifying implications in an age of fake news.

  • You must see Oklahoma City, if only to know the enemy. They're not stuck at the airport.

    Feb 2, 2017 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…
  • A chilling documentary that firmly positions McVeigh not as some delusional loner but rather as a product of a far-right subculture that looked on the U.S. federal government as one of the most dangerous forces on the face of the Earth.

  • It's useful mostly to people who know little or nothing about the subject matter, and as proof that slamming the door on Muslims can't magically solve terrorism.
