Since I'm a huge fan of Michael Winterbottom, I was really eager to check this flick. First of all, I want to make something clear. This is not a documentary! It is based on actual events and they tried to portray those events as faithfully as possible but those men were actors with a script, not real people in real life situation. To call this movie a documentary, would be like saying that 'The S... read more

Description: The post-9/11 climate found the U.S. government resorting to many unorthodox methods to quash the perceived threat from further terrorist attacks. None was more controversial or more headline-grabbing than the detainment camp set up in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, which was constructed to imprison and interrogate Taliban and Al-Qaeda operati ...

" This poster for a documentary about torture, depicts a man in chains with a sack over his head. Naturally, it was deemed inappropriate for theater goers (i.e. children) by the MPAA, for its portrayal of torture. After eliminating the head covered by the sack, this poster was ultimately approved by the MPAA."

It is based on actual events and they tried to portray those events as faithfully as possible but those men were actors with a script, not real people in real life situation. To call this movie a documentary, would be like saying that 'The Schindler's list', 'Not without my daughter' or '127 hours' were documentaries as well. I mean, the directing and acting style are highly reminiscent of a documentary and make the whole thing quite spellbinding to watch. Furthermore, even though nothing really surprising is displayed, it is still rather shocking and heartbreaking to behold. Another thing that bothered me a little was that the whole” read more

10 Memorable Movie Poster Controversies (10 movies items)

" Comment: Michael Winterbottom and Mat Whitecross’s 2006 documentary/reenactment hybrid tells the true story of three British men held at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba for over two years without charges or cause — powerful stuff, and requiring a powerful image. But the MPAA turned down the first poster submitted by Roadside Attractions (left) — positively tame compared to the images that emanated from, say, Abu Gharib. “The reason given was that the burlap bag over the guy’s head was depicti"

Staggering drama...

The Road to Guantánamo combines fact and fiction to create a staggering and riveting docu-drama that potently illustrates horrifying events currently transpiring in our present-day world. Its relevance to today's existing society is overwhelming. The film's directors won an award at the Berlin Film Festival of 2006 for their powerful illumination of the little-known happenings in that tiny corner of Cuba known as Guantánamo Bay. Presently the United States government has refused to shed light on their activities in Guantánamo Bay camps that con” read more
