Does anyone plan to see this? The trailers look pretty good. And damning.
hadn't heard of it
Loughinisland relative slams PSNI response to film
Yes give us some truth,let the enemies of Ireland be known.
BBC under pressure over lack of No Stone Unturned coverage
It was shit
What makes you say that? Even if it was, at least there'll be more attention paid to the case (although nothing will come of it) and the families have been allowed to vent and express their frustrations.
I'm seeing it Friday and am looking forward to it.
BBC Radio Ulster - Talkback, "No Stone Unturned" tells the story of the Loughinisland massacre of 1994. We speak to the Oscar winning director Alex Gibney
Just got back from seeing it, and it was money well-spent.

Mr O'Reilly you said earlier you have sympathy for Ulster loyalists. What gives?
During Marching Season especially, I have zero sympathy for Loyalists. However bizarre it may seem otherwise, Loyalists are in many respects kindred spirits with white Americans. They landed in a place they originally didn't belong, but they are not going anywhere, nor do they have any intent to do so. They feel that demographic and political changes constitute an existential threat to their way of life and they also feel abandoned by their so-called political leaders. I understand Loyalists' point of view, but I by no means justify it.
On thing that troubles me is the fervor and myopia of too many Northern Republicans. Those that agitate for an Irish language act and a united Ireland A.S.A.F.P. with no regard for the consequences risk riling a significant number of Protestants who are unskilled, underemployed or unemployed. In their midst seems to be fertile recruiting ground for a rebirth of the hard core of the U.V.F., U.D.A and L.V.F., who will be seen by many disaffected Loyalists as the guarantors of their rights, not the D.U.P. or the U.U.P.
I walked around the Falls and Shankill (I was ill-at-ease there, that's for damn sure) Roads last December, and I juxtaposed the pussified murals promoted by the Shinners (the militant murals have all been effaced, it seems) in contrast to those maintained by the Loyalists that glorify King Billy, Loyalist terrorists and killing all Taigs. I can't see these people rolling over for a united Ireland and I can't see them giving up without a fight.
Call me an American ignoramus, but that's my two cents.
Mr O'Reilly, is your real name O'Sullivan Bere?
Are you implying that I would swear fealty to an English regent for personal gain? I'd sooner be hanged, drawn and quartered.
Hell, when I make it back to the Auld Sod, I'll give you my real name after a few pints of whiskey. This much I will divulge: My grandma was a Reilly from Strabane and my grandpa was a Tipperaryman.
I just noticed on the other thread you went to a Catholic school therefore you are indeed not O'Sullivan Bere. That guy is a rather sinister Quaker (of all things) over on P.ie.
I apologise for the inference Sir.
No harm done, my good man.
I wonder how they would hold out without the indirect support of the British Army behind them. They were second rate during the troubles, even with state collusion - the provos were more sophisticated and deadly.
That is quite true. They used to call most of their own operations as "TPFU's": Typical Prod fuck ups.
That said, it only takes a few lunatics to cause havoc.
It's amazing the amount of trouble and disruption small groups can cause -- anywhere in the world.
