“Directors Luc Côté and Patricio Henriquez expertly flesh out Khadr’s story by weaving the footage of the interrogation together with commentary from people who know Khadr—including family, former cellmates, and even U.S. and Canadian civilans and military officials who have advocated on his behalf. ” Read more...

DVD Talk

DVD Talk - September 28 2011
Jason Bailey

“The progression of events is tense and riveting. After the Canadians leave for the last time, the camera keeps rolling on Khadr alone in that room. His lonely form is kept up on one side of the screen, while his cellmates and supporters appear on the other side. It's a potent visual metaphor. Their backing is admirable, but it ultimately doesn't amount to much--he's still there, a solitary man. ” Read more...

Variety

Variety - September 28th 2011
Ronnie Scheib

“Luc Cote and Patricio Henriquez's "You Don't Like the Truth" demonstrates, through excerpts from an actual videotaped interrogation at Guantanamo, the process by which human will can be systematically broken down to force an admission of guilt, regardless of truth. By showing a delegation of Canadians grilling a fellow Canadian youth who was previously tortured by Americans, this disturbing docu casts the U.S. not as an exporter of democracy but as an international enabler of civil-rights violations. Bowing Sept. 28 at Gotham's Film Forum, advocacy pic should spark sufficient outrage to propel it through the arthouse circuit. ” Read more...

The New York Times

Jeannette Catsoulis

“Painfully stark yet utterly magnetic. The Montreal-based filmmakers Luc Côté and Patricio Henriquez have assembled an even-tempered glimpse behind a very dark curtain. Briefly illuminating what one commenter calls the “legal black hole” of Guantánamo Bay, “You Don't Like the Truth” cleverly employs voyeuristic techniques to unveil hidden atrocities. ” Read more...

Slant Magazine - June 15th 2011
Bill Weber
"In the "legal black hole" of Guantanamo, its youngest prisoner, now 24 and serving an eight-year sentence in the wake of copping a plea, seems a living testament to American callousness toward norms of international justice and the likelihood of reaping future enemies from the scapegoats among the interned."
