As riveting as it is dizzying, Schroeder's documentary thriller takes a mesmerising ad hominem approach to twentieth century terror, offering up for our judgement an advocate whose views ought to be indefensible. Full Review

The title is both a statement of fact and a worrisome understatement in a documentary as slippery as its subject.

Rating: 4/5 -- Terror's Advocate is a history lesson in modern insurgency and terrorism paranoia without ever being lecturing at any point. The conceited Vergès is always entertaining and clearly loves his own notoriety in this engrossing film. Full Review

4 stars out of 5 -- [T]his is a superbly researched and structured provocation that reveals how dark and dangerous our world really is.

Rating: 4/5 -- Ainda que falhe em decifrar seu complexo protagonista, o documentário estabelece um intrigante retrato de um homem cujos princípios morais e ideológicos eventualmente se tornam tão flexíveis quanto o espectro alcançado por sua clientela.

TERROR'S ADVOCATE remains a staggering document, offering a view of recent history not commonly portrayed in textbooks and from which much can be learned about the current state of humanity.

Product Description:

Barbet Schroeder (MURDER BY NUMBERS) helms this harrowing documentary about Jacques Vergès, one of the most controversial figures of the 20th century. After an unexplained absence of nearly a decade, Vergès returned to defend such notorious characters as Carlos the Jackal and Nazi war criminal Klaus Barbie.
