Critic Reviews for War on Whistleblowers: Free Press and the National Security State

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (4)

At under an hour, the film, which also touches on White House-driven leaks for political gain, can't help but feel a bit incomplete.

April 26, 2013 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

Whistle-blowers become effective when their information appears in a news outlet's reliably sober columns - not in a bar mitzvah video.

April 18, 2013 | Rating: 2/5

Robert Greenwald's docu paints a sobering picture of a national security state.

Accessible without sacrificing nuance or intelligence.

April 16, 2013 | Full Review…

The film doesn't so much unfold as detonate. It's a swift kick in the pants at 66 minutes and utilizes a deft blend of archival footage, graphs, subject interviews and bites from knowledgeable talking heads such as David Carr.
