Follows one wounded soldier's attempt to readjust to life in the United States as a handicapped veteran, while painting an incriminating portrait of Democratic politicians and the war in Iraq.
Unapologetically political, this intimate and heart wrenching profile of an Iraq veteran may be rough around the edges but takes a potent stance with determination and compassion.
Whatever you think of the film, Body of War stirs up real admiration for its subject.
The overreaching Spiro and Donahue are not content to persuade viewers; they insist on convincing us.
When is a startling and devastating war movie made in the past too long ago to shed light on the present? Well, apparently never, if we're talking permanent war characterizing the endless US invasions and occupations around the world.
[Tomas Young] deserves better treatment from the government than he's gotten as a returning veteran, and a better movie than this simpleminded indictment of every senator who voted 'yea.'
It is not merely an antiwar document, but a complex profile in courage of a paraplegic and patriot.
The doc gets up-close and personal. It shows one injured vet's reality after war.
Body of War again demonstrates that we Americans still have some bitter truths to face.
Body of War makes no bones about its activism. Then again, like the others, it's the willingness to contextualize events and apply reason to them that makes it and others so valuable.
"Body of War" is so simple-minded and ham-handed in its case against the war that it ends up diluting its own argument.
