Description Technical Specs
Michael Tucker's documentary about a U.S. artillery company stationed in one of Saddam Hussein's personal pleasure palaces is the most honest depiction to date of what it's actually like to be serving in Iraq. Tucker abandons the rah-rah cliches of the news media's embedded reporters to let the soldiers speak about their own experiences in their own terms. From impromptu raps and amateur guitar solos to bursting bombs and seething resentments, Tucker's film offers a complex picture of life during wartime. "Jammed with information and serious testimony, giving a detailed and textured account of what it's like to be fighting the war more than a year after victory was declared" (J.R. Jones, Chicago Reader).
