  • [New – 3/5/15] | David Bax @ Battleship Pretension
    • Excerpt: Kenner scores by securing candid interviews with a handful of the already small number of people who did this kind of work. They’re so confidently unrepentant, it’s almost easy to start liking them until Kenner reminds you of the impact of their lies.
  • [New – 3/5/15] | Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
    • Excerpt: The blatancy with which industries and lobbyists lie to the public…is enraging, of course, but Kenner’s pretty much negated the point of his own work here.
  • [New – 3/20/15] | James Jay Edwards @ FilmFracture
    • Excerpt: ‘Merchants of Doubt’ – A Documentary That Every Media Consumer Should See
  • [New – 3/12/15] | Charlie Juhl @ Citizen Charlie
    • Excerpt: Come and learn the names of the folks hired by Big Oil to lie to you about climate change

    • Excerpt: Merchant of Doubt is loaded with devastating material, but it also manages to keep its style upbeat and its mood entertaining.
  • [New – 4/17/15] | Andrew Wyatt @ Gateway Cinephile
    • Excerpt: Rather than making the case for anthropogenic climate change, Merchants of Doubt devotes the bulk of its attention to scrutinizing the professional con artists who publicly deny the phenomenon.
