    Crítico, objetivo e ainda singelo, constata algo que, de certa forma, todos nós latino-americanos já sabíamos: "os ventos do Norte não movem moinhos". Contudo, é maravilhoso perceber, por meio desse grande registro, que nossa alma já não se encontra mais tão cativa... Marcantes depoimentos e ótima trilha sonora!

    Usual John Piliger film bringing all his experience as a foreign affairs correspondent to bear on this analysis of right wing US foreign policy over 4 decades. John pulls no punches with his socialist critique and it is an eye opener and a reminder how elected representatives are not always what they say they are.

    You may not always agree with what is transported in this documentary. Historical accuracy (and democratic fair play) is being dealt with just as loosely on the side of the "revolutionaries" as on the other side. Still, it is thought-provoking and makes you wonder what kind of characters the American people-and by this I mean all the countries of the Americas-put in charge of their destiny. Some very uncomfortable questions are aired. You be the judge of whether they have been answered or not.

    Nothing I didn't already know, but Pilger's politics are in the right place. I just wish he were a better film maker. At times he comes off as way too self-conscience and he proselytizes too much as well. Read Naomi Klein's The Shock Doctrine for a better account of what Pilger is saying.

    A documentary that opened my eyes to the struggles of Latin America - a continent not much talked about in the East - and how its North American counterpart fits into the picture. I wouldn't say that the film is totally unbiased, but it does have some valid points to make
