Editorial Reviews

When in 1998 Chilean judge Juan Guzmán was assigned the first criminal cases against the country's ex-dictator, General Augusto Pinochet, no one expected much. Guzmán had supported Pinochet's 1973 coup that left the democratically elected president, Salvador Allende, and thousands of others dead.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exceptional and informative May 15, 2012
Format:Amazon Instant Video
Outstanding documentary. I was fascinated by the journey Guzman takes from being a conservative who had welcomed in Pinochet back in the day, to pursuing the case against the dictator. The documentary will disturb you, but it's essential viewing. More chilling, I think, then the footage of bodies unearthed, is the blind devotion of those who still regard Pinochet as a great man. The man himself was by all accounts a despicable sociopath, and he's more then earned his place in hell. It's interesting to see Guzman, a decent man, as he comes to terms with this dark period in his country's history and pursues justice.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Coverage March 5, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
Excellent coverage of the story. It does not ignore the fact that there are divergent opinions on this very controversial topic in Chile.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very informative August 24, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
I don't know much about the dictatorship, but this documentary presents an excellent assortment of knowledge about it. I appreciate that the documentary guides the case to the present, using current testimonies and data, instead of presenting only historical evidence and further alienating it from us today. And, of course, this documentary covers a very significant moment of history. It's very nice to have it communicated in this format.
