    I saw this at the Tiburon International Film Festival. Given the venue, I expected a San Francisco-ish, leftist anti-war propaganda piece. I was pleasantly surprised to see that this was a well balanced view of the reality of one soldier's experience in Iraq.

    The section showing video of Saddam Hussein's torturing of Iraqis was especially moving. People being thrown off tall buildings, their bodies then shown crumpling on pavement. A man shown, his tongue held by pliers, being cut off. Why haven't we seen this footage before??

    What I most appreciated, however, was the depiction of the mundane experience of the typical Iraq soldier, punctuated by moments of terror.
