Trivia

The documentary's near non existent interviews with "talking head" pays homage to The World at War, the famed British television series that emphasized narration and archival footage instead of the usual interviews with officials retelling the story. This allows for the audience to follow the story without it getting ahead of them. See more »

Excellent stuff!
12 December 2012 | by steinifrimSee all my reviews

Here we go again. An excellent documentary that shows the world from the perspective of the whole world instead of just the view "The United States of God bless America". Queue the 1 star ratings from the "true patriots" that say that anything that says USA isn't perfect must be propaganda. This sort of brainwashing is exactly what is described in episode five. So please don't be fooled by this. This is actual history, if you look this up you will find the events actually took place. Even though sometimes it may seem Stone is trying to make the soviets less horrible it does not mean they weren't horrible, that just means that they weren't the monsters that the American public was let think they were and that the US escalated the cold war just as much as the Soviets. I am actually astonished that the people in the so called "greatest country in the world" can't take a look at it self and realize that they might of done some wrong in the past.

Please ignore ignorant rantings about anti-U.S. propaganda.
