  • Foulkrod's film is not about taking a political side, though it is clear she is strongly opposed to the war in Iraq. Her focus instead is on the dehumanizing of eager young men and their transformation into killing machines. show more

  • The documentary any American with an opinion on our involvement in Iraq owes it to his or her conscience to see. show more

  • This film, a raw howl of outrage and pain, is proudly one-sided, allowing a generation of wounded men and women to scream their betrayal. show more
