Powerful Documentary from a First Time Filmmaker
R. D. Waters | Newton, NC United States | 09/20/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Feel safer after the creation of the Department of Homeland Security? Feel okay about the USAPATRIOT Act and what it could be used for? Do you believe you really know what your government is doing? If you answered "no" to any of these questions then this film is for you.

First time filmmaker Christine Rose has created a powerful documentary about the post-9/11 state of the nation. She starts out traveling the country in search of the truth about our post-9/11 increased security measures and individual liberties. What starts out as a simple set of questions turns into a damning indictment of the heavy-handed reaction of the Bush administration to the 9/11 attacks.

Rose tackles issues about 9/11 and the new powers of the FBI and Homeland Security Department that Michael Moore's "Fahrenheit 911" barely touched upon. The questions asked are excellent food for thought. How do we live in a more secure state without giving up our liberties? Is the Constitution still relevant? Can we trust the investigative powers of the FBI and CIA after the complete failure of the system on 9/11 and the run up to the Iraq war? Moore indicts Saudi Arabia and its close ties to the Bush family, but Rose suggests that there may be more to the story. My take? There's always more to the story when it comes to politics and policy.

Rose makes excellent use of interview material with respected historian Howard Zinn, author Michael Parenti, and investigative journalist Michael C. Ruppert. It should be noted that Rose completed her film before the conclusion of the 9/11 Commission, but that does not make any of her or her interviewee insights irrelevant. The conclusion of the film is sobering and thoughtful. Rose dares to raise disturbing questions about fascism in the U.S., secrecy in government, and the loss of our liberties. The questions raised should provoke hours of discussion with your friends and family and should generate a few letters to your Congressional representatives. I look forward to Rose's next documentary."
TRUTH sets you free

(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a Grassroots film already receiving fantastic reviews in France. Americans in Paris have had TRUTH before we in America have. Our news/reviews/and promotional outlets are now being exposed as untrustworthy, This is A "TWO THUMBS UP" for TRUTH exposing the lack of respect police & government employees have on the people of the United States of America. These police/gov't officials are also your kin, your friends and your neigbors. WAKEUP America, this film documents TRUTH you ignore. Continue to ignore and liberty is lost for "None are so hopelessly enslaved as those who falsely believe they are free" {Quoting Johann W. Goethe poet 1749-1832} Semper Fi ~~ dmr ~~
Liberty Bound
S. Leroux | USA | 10/16/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This film responds to the suspicions of millions who have woken up and started to wonder if our civil liberties are being eroded and if major media is reporting the entire truth about what our government is really doing. You'll hear from people who have been interrogated by the Secret Service and threatened with arrest for doing such benign things as sending an email, turning around during a Bush speech, and having a philosophical discussion on a train. Through Ms. Rose's interviews and research of archived footage, Liberty Bound explores unanswered questions surrounding the attacks of 9/11, the government's reasons for going to war, and if recent occurrences in our country are signs that we are moving toward becoming a fascist state. As the saying goes, the truth will first make you miserable, but it will set you free."
Great Independent Film
Richard T. Sadler | Memphis, TN. | 10/15/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"You have to hand it to Christine Rose. She saw the problems developing in our country since 9-11 was exploited for political purposes and decided to make a movie about it. Travelling across the country, she has great interviews with Howard Zinn, Michael Parenti, and others. She finds people who have been victimized by the Patriot Act. Altogether a very accomplished film from a first time director. Was very popular when it was shown in France.
One of the most harrowing segments is a real time voice recording of the air traffic controllers trying to contact the doomed flight that crashed in Pennsylvannia on 9-11. The screen is blank except for the captioned voices of the controllers and finally, a terrorist voice is heard. That section will haunt you. This movie shows what one determined person (working with friends and relatives) can accomplish. Bravo!"
