Time Out says

For their second American documentary, British film-makers Broomfield and Churchill took on the US Army, following three women recruits through induction and basic training. They learn the marching chant 'Kill, maim, rape, pillage', how to bite the head off a chicken, and how to accept/subvert the repressive machine of the military that still believes it was cheated of victory in Vietnam and is guaranteed to win the next war. An object lesson in the mechanisms of patriarchal power-play that is by turns appalling, amusing and amazing.
