standard errol morris stuff here in both style and substance. really exposes the depth of insanity in dealing with abu ghraib on our part and is fairly depressing as a result. it’s not brought up in the film, really, but i’m split on the idea of how war is waged these days. for a long time i’ve felt that perhaps we would be better off if we required a draft and if the geneva conventions were thrown in the trash. if everyone’s ass was on the line and if rape and murder of civilians was expected then perhaps we’d be less likely to agree to wars on two fronts for no real good reason, at the same time. maybe we’d think twice about this insane tradition of perpetual war. or maybe the govt. would just get better at covering up movies like this. danny elfman does his best philip glass impersonation and comes up short. nice try danny.
