A documentary that illuminates, entertains and inspires -- a timely triple feat given the stakes in the presidential election.
Smart and unexpected, SecrecyM combines thoughtful interviews with an elegant visual look to produce an incisive examination of some of the key issues of our time.
A stimulating, somewhat ambiguous new documentary about the changes in intelligence gathering since Sept. 11, 2001.
This one is not about secrecy per se, but about the strangely compelling people who fight for or against it.
In this age of political docu mentaries, it's always nice to come upon one that strives to be even-handed.
If the movie follows no single thread of inquiry, nor sustains any argument or research in depth, it nevertheless explores some chilling corridors of the clandestine.
It is also beautifully crafted, filled with slippery bits of black and white animation that graphically illustrate some of the points being made.
A messily structured look into the hidden world of national security policy and the 'classification universe,' Secrecy comes off as not much more than an aperitif.
Its a neat balancing act that no doubt required some serious juggling in the editing room.
Secrecy may sound like the latest grade-B horror flick, but it's a horror movie of another kind: a documentary exploring the history of U.S. government clandestiness.
This exceedingly "fair and balanced" (in the true meaning of the phrase), densely layered scrutiny of the nation's "disappeared" knowledge warrants viewing--even repeated viewing.
Secrecy might have had a different kind of resonance, for I grew up with the understanding that there is much that is not my place to know. Some questions are not to be asked.
