Movie Info

ederal officer with the Department of Homeland Security discovers a national security breach related to the entry of 23 aliens from terrorist countries into the United States. Customs and Border Protection Commissioner, former head of the DEA Robert Bonner can't afford any more media scrutiny, since his incompetence was already exposed in the NASA 'Challenger' disaster. To avoid the scandal, the full might of the government is unleashed against Julia Davis, her family and witnesses. This retaliation reaches the unprecedented magnitude, including four unexplained deaths, Hollywood and the Mafia, false imprisonments and the use of helicopters and airplanes for warrantless surveillance. Amidst many shocking revelations, this documentary provides a new insight into the deaths of well-known Hollywood figures unwittingly dragged into this scandal. The truth is no longer a secret. -- (C) Fleur De Lis Film Studios


Critic Reviews for Top Priority: The Terror Within

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (3)

This overlong film ... indulges in needless repetition and superfluous, often self-aggrandizing segues ...

This screeching exposé from Asif Akbar serves neither the viewer nor its embattled subject.

June 29, 2012 | Rating: 1.5/5

Asif Akbar's documentary on filmmaker-turned-whistle-blower Julia Davis boasts a TV-movie aesthetic, clearly born of a shoestring budget that too often distracts from the core story instead of enhancing it.

An aura of 'truthiness' more than truth surrounds this messy offering -- an intensely felt but poorly reasoned cinematic treatise against abuse of governmental power and bureaucracy run amok.

July 15, 2012 | Rating: C- | Full Review…

Enraging, but often heavy-handed and speculative.

There are more twists and turns to this film then all of the rides at Disneyland
