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

Enlightening, compelling and, finally, heartbreaking.

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

[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.

This film is narratively inert (we spend a lot of time listening to the same questions being asked over and over) and, like virtually all docs in its genre, less than vigorous in its pursuit of truth.

You Don't Like the Truth focuses on the pathetic manipulations of Canadian intelligence officers as they interrogate Toronto-born Omar Khadr, the youngest prisoner held in Guantánamo Bay.

This doc raises enough questions about the ends justifying the means during an era of endless war that it earns the right to be called essential viewing.

For once, no one rants, and, in the relative calm, the tone can be heard, so muted and sad.
