2. Yes! Definitely Go! Execellent Documentary!
I saw it a couple weeks ago. It is a very sober and evenhanded documentary, showing what it's really like for army infantry on the ground outside of Fallujah (early on, before it was more or less leveled by the Marines).

Gives you a real sense of the futility and pain caused on both sides, without being in any way ideological or shrill. Basically an honest documentary. It does have a point of view, I guess, but is evenhanded and honest in presenting that point of view.

If a picture is worth a thousand words, this is worth a million. Since you probably want to have some idea what's really going on in Iraq (particularly if you are one of us who talk about Iraq a lot), and since you probably don't want to enlist and join the infantry, this is perhaps the next best way to get some real sense about what's going on there.
