War Made Easy: How Presidents & Pundits Keep Spinning Us to Death is a depressing look at political manipulation and news media compliance.

The doc is sobering, straightforward, and a bit drab, but to the participants' credit, it's also an entirely nonpartisan endeavor.

Makes a strong case that when it comes to military action, the American public has been deceived by presidents from Lyndon Johnson on down the line to the current occupant of the White House.

While the film is intensely skeptical of the power elite, it has a refreshing faith in democracy.

Audience Reviews for War Made Easy

Biting documentary that juxtaposes Iraq with the rosy picture portrayed by the administration. What makes this film different from others is the use of kenetic montage and news clips to show how the mass media were co-conspirators in duping the public.

Brilliant. Exceptionally well put together. Clear and concise and scarily on point. You may have a good idea about most of these points but seeing them all brought together, it's hard to argue with. Warning: This movie may upset most sheep, so be sure to stay in you herd if you have trouble thinking for yourself or this may make you bleet so loud that the farmer has to put you down.

Celluloid full of rubbish. Another propaganda fest for America haters. There are people that want to kill us just because of who we are. When are these lefty-loons going to get it?
