Shouting Fire: Stories from the Edge of Free Speech
A documentary look at the changing interpretations of the first amendment of the U.S. Constitution - laws and court cases that have alternatively broadened and narrowed the amendment's protection of free speech and assembly. The film's thesis is that post-9/11 the government has seized unprecedented license to surveil, intimidate, arrest, and detain citizens and foreigners alike. The film also looks back to the Pentagon Papers' case and compares it to cases since 9/11 dealing with high school students' speech and protesters marching in New York City during the 2004 Republican convention. Comment comes from a range of scholars, pundits, and advocates.

This requires a director to envision it as something new, and I think that is what nagged me about Jeffrey. Overall, I liked the performances (especially Michael T. Weiss) and the story, but I think Jeffrey's struggle could've been delved into more on film.
