Time Out says
For six weeks in 2004, the codirectors followed members of the 82nd Airborne
around Fallujah, dogging a small platoon as its soldiers sat around arguing
about supermodels or went out on night raids to round up possible insurgents.
You'd expect either a liberal antiwar indictment or an embedded backslap for our
boys over there, but what emerges is a counterpoint to the myth that all of the
armed forces deployed in Iraq consist of brain-dead hicks just out to whup some
ass. By giving these often thoughtful soldiers a forum, the duo has made
something far chewier than the usual bumper-sticker polemics.
