I review Silenced: Our War on Free Speech, the new documentary from Mike Cernovich and Loren Feldman, at Right On:
Therein lies Silenced’s main problem: a lack of direction. Cernovich may have been afraid that if he appeared too much in the movie, it would look like a vanity project, but he went too far in the opposite direction.

Even a minimal amount of narration at the beginning of the film and each of its sections would have gone a long way towards immersing the audience in the action.
