Cannot think of a documentary I have seen that had a harder time deciding where it was going to go. The title suggests it will concentrate on WWII's immediate aftermath, but at least half of LIBERATION is a cursory chronicle of the beginning and duration of the war. There's a section, narrated by Whoopi of course, about American racial prejudice that comes and goes without any tie-in to the rest of the movie, likewise another segment about popular song and culture during WWII. Of course the camps are highlighted but its difficult to say that the title concerns their liberation; e.g., the choice of title might just mean general liberation from oppression. This is undergraduate level work at best.
