"I have seen this documentry many times before and even if it has been made in the early 90's, It's content is still very relevant today on how the media functions and of unchanged US foreign policy. The film goes much deeper then snipets of Noam Chomsky's many talks around the world, it also goes into his upbringing and inluences which led him to be the much loved dissident he is today. This film is a must see, whether you are a fan of Noam Chomsky or not."
Better than Michael Moore

"While Michael Moore movies such as Roger and Me have its place, something a bit deeper would be this movie about the influence the media has on our thinking and perception of the world, especially world events. This is a long, two-part documentary with very interesting information about Vietnam and East Timor. The movie makers also let a lot of Chomsky critics speak, so the viewer really does have to make his own decision whether or not Chomsky is too radical in his analysis. Great movie for group discussion. Also allows for a closer look at Chomsky the man. He does remind me of Woody Allen at times, though of course so much more profound, no?! William F. Buckley being at the beginning of the star list is rather misleading, but you do see the editor of the New York Times here quite a bit."
