September 17, 2007
An astonishing tale of survival, a kind of modern Odyssey with a touch of the old mistaken-identity scenario, presented in a pointedly discriminating first-person narrative.

While THE ROAD TO GUANTÁNAMO treats the men's tales with respect, astute viewers will question the nature of the youths' visits.

Gripping, nightmarish, and at times bleakly funny, The Road To Guantánamo is far too important a personal testimony to go unheard.
April 22, 2007
Guided terror tour of US atrocity culture.
December 19, 2006
Forte sem jamais se tornar apelativo, é uma denúncia contundente que expõe, de forma inequívoca, os abusos, a crueldade e a arrogância atroz do governo norte-americano, cujos integrantes deveriam ser julgados por crimes de guerra.

Until we get an accounting, let's be grateful we've got the docudrama.

Road to Guantánamo is surprisingly confusing about how they got themselves captured %u2026 Perhaps the most astounding aspect of the story is the revelation that their experiences have helped them become better, stronger people

This is a horrifying movie, all the more so because it's true...

August 27, 2006
Raw, riveting filmmaking that shines a light on the dark underbelly of the 'war on terror.' . . . a searing exposé of how badly our supposedly democratic, rights-upholding part of the world has lost its way since September 11.
August 25, 2006
What happened to them was an accident, but what was done to them is a cautionary tale of how the treatment of prisoners reflects on their captors, and how such treatment can breed the very things we fear: defiant, hardened enemies of the West.

Tells a powerful story, even if you do have to wonder about the sensitivity of releasing a film like this so close to the anniversary of 9/11.

The conception doesn't work perfectly.... Still, the film is muscular, persuasive, and necessary without being exploitative.

The film once again raises the issue of whether we're correct to disregard human rights and common decency in the wake of 9/11.
Full Review | Original Score: 7/10
July 19, 2006
Perhaps it will be a strong enough reminder of what's going on down there, un-checked and unregulated, that it will encourage those familiar with the subject to at least talk about it more with those who aren't.
