Easily the best documentary about the war in Iraq that I've seen. At times, the composition looked so damn good that I thought I was watching a feature film. At others, I thought I was watching an art film.
The movie is split into three segments. The first one is about an eleven-year-old Sunni boy in Baghdad. His main concern is about getting hassled for his failing grades rather than the American soliders in the street. The second segment is about Sadr's Shiite militia in the south. The final part is about the Kurds in the quiet north. The film is shot verite style and is truly a great film. The last documentary to effect me like this was last year's Darwin's Nightmare. Who says political films can't also be beautiful to look at?
