Kill the Messenger Review: Gritty, Gutsy Thriller Gets Its Hands Dirty

Kill the Messenger largely succeeds at opening old conspiracy wounds. When is the truth too big to tell? 9/11 conspiracies dominated conversation afterwards, but recent history has been littered with one story of government betrayal after another. In Kill the Messenger , we see what was perhaps the first story to go viral, leading its writer to suffer greatly under its torrid but largely unsubstantiated revelations.
