The War Tapes (2006) NR - 4 Stars

Filmmaker Deborah Scranton gives cameras to three National Guard volunteers serving in the Iraq war. They are Sgt. Zack Bazzi, Spc. Mike Moriarty, and Sgt. Steve Pink. The soldiers are asked to take photos and discuss how they felt about what the saw and how it effected them. The men become increasingly cynical about the causes and motivations behind the war.

I eat up these documentaries to get all perspectives on the war instead of just the propaganda our government wants us to hear and believe.

2006 - The War Tapes - Tribeca Film Festival - Best International Documentary.
