Politically, I had some problems with this film which appears to suggest at times that if we'd only not disbanded the Iraqi Army or just listened to Richard Armitage more that everything in Iraq would have turned out roses. It also doesn't offer any hint that Iraq occurred in a wider context of a mad scheme for regional domination and that this scheme compelled some of the otherwise inexplicable choices. That said, it's a stunning film and will remind many and teacher others for the first time about the depth and breadth of the madcap ignorance and incompetence with which the administration plunged into Iraq. Go see it, and bring your less-political friends.
