What are people saying?

  • EdieEmm's rating of the film Shadows of Liberty

    The rise of consensus cover-ups, broad-based spin and the censoring of journalists, coincident with the increasing concentration of US mass media under corporate control. An alarming film, and politically compelling, but in the face of such broad (if no doubt valid) allegations, journalistically/analytically lacking. Also cinematically unexceptional. Still, a commendable endeavour.
