Alex Gibney, who had a hand in such whistle-blowing documentaries as No End in Sight, Who Killed the Electric Car?, and Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room, lays out a damning case against the US military - from Vice President Cheney on down to enlisted MPs - for its systematic use of physical and psychological torture on suspected terrorists in Afghanistan, Iraq, and Guantanamo. Turns it was worse than those infamous Abu Ghraib photos. Who set the rules? The evidence points to Cheney. More dispiriting than any torture-porn Hollywood entertainment, because its absolutely true. Written and directed by Gibney (106 min.).
