"There are many documentaries angry about the human destruction of the planetary peace. This is one of the very best." - Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"The movie is a Trojan horse: an exceptionally well-made documentary that unfolds like a spy thriller, complete with bugged hotel rooms, clandestine derring-do and mysterious men in gray flannel suits." - Jeannette Catsoulis, The New York Times
