ReviewSource San Francisco Chronicle
Review Like Michael Moore in "Fahrenheit 9/11," Jarecki takes his cameras to the streets to canvass the common folk, who dish out patriotism, gullibility and suspicion in equal amounts. He also invests his rhetoric with several human-interest angles, from a young volunteer who joins the Army as respite from a dead-end life to a retired New York police officer who supported the war in Iraq because he was seeking justice for a son killed in the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks. He never got it, and his expressions of betrayal offer a more effective damnation of political deceit than all the other punditry in the film combined.

ReviewSource Chicago Sun-Times
Review Shouldn't it be obvious that a legislator who votes against government spending in his own district must have given the matter a lot of thought, and be courageous, and perhaps even correct? That's a useful thought. But it's not news, and when documentaries like "Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room" contain fresh and shocking information, a film like "Why We Fight" is not very necessary.
