“Some stories are just too true to tell” – Probably my favorite line from this movie. What a great movie, about truth, and the rollercoaster one man puts himself on in the search for and attempting to tell it …
AND not just a couple of foreign journalists in a far away place – Kill The Messenger is set in the US …
The story of the movie being the CIA selling drugs in America in order to raise money to fund a war. True or not I don’t know.
One man’s quest to seek the truth and tell it to others. How the truth is eventually marginalised by character assassination and credibility destruction. How the truth is covered up by powerful people who’d really rather the truth wasn’t know, or believed. The lengths which they’ll go to hush or cover up.
His friends and colleges rally round when they think the story is a moneymaker, a honey pot for all of them. Then how quickly they drop him when they realise they’ll lose their jobs and their own credibility if they continue to be seen to support him. Still, business must prosper, right ?
Some stories are just too true to tell, or not, what do you think ?
