| A well-crafted film on a subject of great importance
There's not much one can say about this documentary without chasing the very soul of the subject away, so to speak. Simply put, it is a vital detailing of the horrendous murder of an innocent man who spoke truth to power.

It's a rare thing to find a film of such vital contemporary importance. Every person who watches this is better informed about the world they live in and the power structures that govern - or seek to control - each and every one of us.

Pay no heed to negative reviewers, most if not all of which are almost certainly paid trolls with an agenda. This will be made clear in the film.
