Movie Info

Canadian Omar Khadr was 15 years old, a child soldier, when he was sent by his militant father to work with the Taliban in Afghanistan, assembling mines in an Al Qaeda compound. In 2002, he was captured by U.S. forces during a raid in which he was severely wounded and an American soldier was killed by a hand grenade. Omar was sent to Guantánamo and given the choice of pleading guilty to this murder and accepting an 8-year sentence, or contesting the charge and facing the possibility of life imprisonment. You Don't Like the Truth was culled from seven hours of surveillance material, taken of Omar's questioning, recently declassified by the Canadians. It is the only interrogation footage from inside Gitmo that has ever been released. The legal, political, and psychological implications of this prisoner's ordeal are manifold. -- (C) Films Transit

Worthy of 100 minutes of anyone's time.

Top Critic

What comes through repeatedly is that questions of law and reason, or guilt and innocence, played no role in the case of Omar Khadr.

Top Critic

Enlightening, compelling and, finally, heartbreaking.

Top Critic

Apart from shedding light on the dubious legality of the interrogation, You Don't Like The Truth forcefully questions its effectiveness in getting information.

AV Club
Top Critic

[The film] demonstrates, through excerpts from an actual videotaped interrogation at Guantanamo, the process by which human will can be systematically broken down to force an admission of guilt, regardless of truth.
