Add this engrossing and informative documentary by director Stephen Marshall to the growing list of films that reveal more about the war in Iraq than anything in the mainstream American news media. Marshall, acting as his own cameraman, spent three weeks in Iraq toward the end of 2003. Beginning with Frank, an exile returning home for the first time in 13 years, he talks to a number of people from disparate backgrounds, among them a former reporter for Al Jazeera who describes the U.S. military’s attack on the Palestine Hotel, where she and more than 100 members of the press were staying, and an army corporal who asserts that there is no grassroots insurgency in Iraq—a claim not even the Bush administration can proffer at this point. In English and subtitled Arabic. 82 min.
