500 years after Michelangelo's death, art historian Antonio Forcellino unearths evidence of the prominent artist's involvement with a clandestine fellowship that was attempting to reform the Catholic Church from within. Michelangelo's artwork virtually defined religion for the masses, but was there another side to his religious views? Not only did the group Michelangelo was involved with level damning accusations of corruption against the Catholic Church, they also supported ideas that were considered so heretical they were punishable by death. As Michelangelo attempted to reconcile his views of the church against his personal beliefs regarding salvation, his involvement with the radical group put him at perilous odds with church officials whose power and rulings were absolute.

Not long after the double terror of September 11, 2001 and July 7.,2005, yet another terrorist horror erupted - this one on November 26, 2008. That day, in Mumbai, India, Pakistani militants seized control of the city and proceeded to drive millions of residents into a waking nightmare - storming through cafes, train stations and five star hotels for nearly sixty hours. Meanwhile, several dramas unfolded concurrently: police frantically tried to pull together a unified and effective response, journalists attempted to cover the situation, hostages inside the hotels began frantically sending twitter and text messages out to loved ones, and - perhaps most disturbingly - the Pakistani terrorist coordinators used the media coverage to relay information about victims' whereabouts to their operatives and increase the breadth and severity of the massacre at hand. This documentary from PBS recounts that deeply disturbing, heart-wrenching chronicle.

Critic Reviews for Secrets of the Dead Season 9

All Critics (2) | Top Critics (2)

Largely achieves its objective -- putting a face on the perpetrators as well as their victims.

Top Critic

It's a model of the genre, with a combination of clarity and breathless pace reminiscent (in a very distant way) of a Paul Greengrass "Bourne" movie.
