Silly Maoists

This provocative film directed by Sidney Lumet for HBO only aired a few times, I believe. It should be re-aired, if only to show how well-treated the terror suspect is treated, (yes, the mild interrogation is air conditioned). But back in the spring of 2004, to the New York Times, the idea that America could be as bad as those wicked Chinese was painfully wrongheaded, heavy-handed, simplistic, tendentious, Maoist, silly, and specious.

Good times.
