"...Directed by: Eugene Jarecki. Why would the documentarian who has explored the American penal system as a human rights violation machine (The House I Live In), and the dominating force of militarism in American politics (Why We Fight) suddenly decide to take Elvis Presley's 1963 Rolls-Royce Phantom V on a road trip across the continental U.S.?..."
"...It's the latter that is the focus of filmmaker Eugene Jarecki's new documentary, The Trials of Henry Kissinger (co-produced and written by Alex Gibney), and although the film's title is -- at this stage, anyway -- wishful thinking, the film, commissioned by the BBC, provides enough moral and ethical ammunition against the man to bring his gilded career as global statesman to a grinding halt.
