I got a chance to see this movie tonight.

It really blew me away. Just spectacular in so many ways.

If you haven't heard of it, it's a documentary about the war in Iraq. It follows the army platoon that is currently occupying Udai Hussein's old pad. The director, whose named escapes me at the moment, does an excellent job of letting the soldiers speak for the themselves. And you get the impression they weren't quoted or displayed out of context, as in Fahrenheit 911. Most of the movie just documents their day-to-day activities.

For those of you who have served in the military, the movie might seem just kinda ordinary. But for people like myself, who haven't had the experience, it's very educational. My two best friends from highschool, and a bunch of guys I used to work with, are in Iraq right now. And this movie was the first thing that really gave a me a good visual idea of what their lives are like over there.

Definitely recommended.

Here's a quicktime trailer:

Can you give me some rough things that the movie conveyed? I can't download clips because I am on dial-up. The movie sounds interesting.
