While never letting its tone of studious but stewing detachment slip, the movie quietly builds a truly enraging case for a certain form of systematic official cynicism.

The link between the illegal immigrant problems in the United States and the war in Iraq is explored in the moving documentary The Short Life of Jose Antonio Gutierrez.

Although Ms. Specogna's film fleshes out his life to the extent that it can, the portrait remains frustratingly incomplete. But given its larger subject - a young life trampled beneath history's forward march - this seems entirely fitting.

Now, more than ever, it should be seen here in the U.S. for its ironies, both implicit and explicit.

With only a few letters and family photos, director Heidi Specogna never brings her subject to life.

Heidi Specogna's The Short Life of Jose Antonio Gutierrez sensitively and methodically tells the story of the first U.S. soldier killed in the 2003 Iraq invasion.
