Critic Reviews for Desert One
You can learn a lot more from your failures than your rah-rah successes. Barbara Kopple is of course a veteran [filmmaker] and does this brilliantly.
Director Kopple has obtained never-before-heard audio of communications between Carter and the military command, and it's absolutely chilling to hear the president's reactions...
There's a powerful sense of you-are-there excitement to a lot of this testimony, even if Kopple's emphasis on Operation Eagle Claw tends to emphasize the American side of things in a way that isn't justified by the film's 360-degree approach.
