Consensus: Though he may be preaching to the choir, Keating provides plenty of evidence to back his claims about the former NYC mayor.

While Giuliani Time offers a wealth of important information that many might have long forgotten, its impact is diluted by its heavily biased nature and lack of balance.

Damning documentary indicts the ex-mayor as deserving to be remembered not for the clean-up of the Twin Towers, but for his utter lack of compassion for the impoverished and working classes.
