Entertainment Reviews:

New York Times - 09/26/2002
"...It is unwavering and arresting....Each eloquent interview from the procession of talking heads is like a soliloquy..."
Box Office - 11/01/2002
"...It's a solid piece of journalistic work that draws a picture of a man for whom political expedience became a deadly foreign policy..."
Los Angeles Times - 10/25/2002
"...Bluntly effective..."
Hollywood Reporter - 10/15/2002
"...An unauthorized biography to end all unauthorized biographies....Damned compelling..."

Product Description:

THE TRIALS OF HENRY KISSINGER, a documentary based on the book by British journalist Christopher Hitchens, argues that Kissinger, the former U.S. Secretary of State and the recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize, was a power-hungry warmonger responsible for massive military cover-ups in Vietnam, Cambodia, and East Timor in the 1960s, as well as the assassination of a Chilean leader in 1970. The film includes interviews with historians, political analysts, and such notable journalists as the New York Times' William Safire--a former speech writer for Richard Nixon. In addition, it uses archival footage from the Nixon era, including coverage of events both in Washington and in Vietnam. With narrator Brian Cox guiding the flow of the film and keeping it tightly focused on its arguments, THE TRIALS OF HENRY KISSINGER is shocking in its political revelations and fascinating in its portrait of Kissinger. It was directed by Eugene Jarecki and written by Alex Gibney.

Description by First Run Features Home Video:

Is Henry Kissinger - Nobel Laureate and the most famous diplomat of his time - also a war criminal' Featuring previously unseen footage, declassified documents, and revealing interviews with Kissinger supporters (Alexander Haig, Brent Scowcroft, and William Safire) as well as detractors (Seymour Hersh and Christopher Hitchens), this stunning film explores how a young boy who fled Nazi Germany grew up to become one of the most powerful and controversial figures in U.S. history.
