“You must, you must, you must see this documentary”sssss
“Not only would I suggest seeing it opening night, but I would recommend seeing the film a second time as well.”
“Tremblay marshals a wealth of evidence to demonstrate that government deregulation has paved the way for the perversion of the media’s newsgathering function.”
“With more than 380 films, it’s tough to know what to see, but here five picks that have got a lot of momentum coming into VIFF; ‘Shadows of Liberty’, ‘The Invisible War’, ‘We’re Not Broke’, ‘Starlet’, and ‘I Anna’.”
“The timing couldn’t be better for a theatrical documentary about a corporate media monopoly in American journalism.”
“…the very best of the festival in toto. Frightening, enlightening, anger-inducing, thrilling…”
“…It is uncomfortable viewing – which will please the audience it targets – as it reveals an all too familiar narrative of censorship, cover-ups and corporate control…”
“…a masterpiece of craftsmanship…”
“…a slick, masterful political essay on the degradation of contemporary journalism.”
“…a pull-no-punches kind of film…”
“This is pretty hot-stuff cinema…”
“Tremblay’s film has methodically analysed the crisis of democracy that is the death of actual news reporting in the American corporate media.
“Beautifully shot and replete with artful graphics and animation, Shadows Of Liberty stands on its own as a beautiful artefact.
“Artistry, cinematic or otherwise, and clear-eyed political vision rarely come this close together.”
“Director Jean-Philippe is meticulous and cutting in his analysis.
“…the film is really well made, beautifully filmed and fulfilled, and in the end, Tremblay makes his case very, very well.”
“Tremblay’s scathing media takedown couldn’t be more timely.”
“…the film has real teeth.”
“Depressing and relevant stuff about the mass sell-off of journalistic integrity in our time.”
“The film is extremely well made (great soundtrack), with seemingly unlimited resources to archival footage and impressive personalities.”
“Once in a while a movie comes along that makes it very hard for us not to talk about it – Shadows of Liberty is that movie.”
“Despite covering a what is clearly a controversial topic – the big media monopoly in the United States – audiences have come to see it in droves.”
“Tremblay’s well-presented argument asserts, all Americans should be concerned — if only the media would allow them to be.”
