Eugene Jarecki

Director of primarily political documentaries.

Like It The Trials of Henry Kissinger (2002) -- Directed with Alex Gibney.  Somewhat based on the Christopher Hitchens book The Trial of Henry Kissinger (and featuring interviews with Hitchens), this documentary presents the case for Kissinger as a war criminal (duh).  Whether intentionally or not (it doesn't say anything about it), the movie also demonstrates parallels between Kissinger and Co. and the personages of the Bush administration.  The movie doesn't dumb anything down and is packed with tons of info within its relatively-short run time.
