Fast, Fair and Balanced'. So the FOX News credo goes. This compelling (if slightly overcooked) documentary about the systematic bias inherent in Murdoch's Neo-Conservative news channel is a must see to anyone with a passing interest in how They take Their news over There. From explaining how FOX's misinformation led to a massive percentage of its viewers believing there was a proven link between Iraq and Al Quaeda to a sensational interview with the belligerent Bill O'Reilly chastising the son find out more...
REDACTED (2007)

Certification15 Our Rating

Another Iraq movie, this time a true story from Samarra about an atrocity committed by US troops. Not exactly gratifying, rape and murder rarely are, the film's narration may 'sympathise' with 'brutalised' squaddies, but the characters portrayed are thoroughly unpleasant. find out more...

With over two years of investigation, including the collection of a million and a half words of interview transcript, 'Standard Operating Procedure', from director Errol Morris, is the story behind the infamous photographs taken by US soldiers in Iraq's Abu Ghraib prison. Not as interesting or revelatory as you might hope, and hamstrung as Morris is by the fact that most of those interviewed aren't that bright or able to verbalise why they did what they did, and are only clear that they were hun find out more...

Starting with the murder in an Afghan prison of an innocent taxi-driver by American soldiers, this brilliant documentary outlines the lines of command from Cheney and Rumsfeld down to those on the front line. We learn about the techniques of torture and who authorised which methods. We hear about some of the history of CIA torture methods, the irrelevance of torture to extracting information and its use as a weapon of terror and political posturing by those in power in Washington. find out more...

From previous wars we've had poetry. books, diaries and consequential films, but never before a movie edited from home video shot by a soldier. US Marine artillery officer Scotti has done something unique in this video diary of the sea voyage out, the base camp in Kuwait, the long drive up to Baghdad, liberation and the consequent collapse into anarchy, and Scotti even manages to keep the camera running during firefights. Clips from the news media are interposed to keep us up to date with the ov find out more...
