An anxiety-provoking but uneven documentary on the Arabic news channel al-Jazeera that examines how the light of truth shifts when filtered through a screen of nationalism, Arab or American. While al-Jazeera reporters covering the war in Iraq seem thoughtful and passionate, the Americans – save one – appear weary, shallow, and inappropriate.
