Grant De Palma this much: At least he did not wait until 14 years after hostilities concluded to pull his catch-all war metaphor from the dark cupboard of his psyche.

War was ever a Kubrick-ian hell-ride, futile, fundamentally unheroic and de-humanising, but now it's mocked by a mad multimedia accompaniment innocent of all real ethical, moral and humanitarian value.

It's hard to watch, and should be. But harder for other reasons. As an experiment in storytelling, it's mainly tedious and phony.

Redacted, director Brian DePalma's ugly little Iraq War movie, wastes an interesting approach on trite, crude and painfully superficial content.

It is simply so amateurish and overacted that it makes it impossible to become invested in the documentary-like reality De Palma hopes to achieve.

It shows rare courage in protesting the widespread abuse of innocent Iraqis, but its pseudodocumentary form is full of awkward misfires and its acting is often terrible.

Even at its most blatantly manipulative, Redacted provokes a response of rage, disgust and anger. De Palma strives to ignite passion, and while some of that passion may end up directed at the film itself, Redacted is an antidote to apathy.

Of all the war-themed pictures that have been released so far this fall, it stands apart, and it stands alone: Redacted is confrontational, rough, immediate and confounding.

It's an effective experiment and a hackle-raising drama, and it's far better controlled than De Palma's last film, the flailing noir mess The Black Dahlia.

Redacted might have been more compelling if De Palma had redacted himself a bit -- if he hadn't been so overt, if he'd given us enough credit to think for ourselves and come to our own conclusions about these men and the choices they made.

Curiously, Mr. De Palma makes very little effort to comprehend the wrongdoers in his version of Iraq. Their vile language and clear class inferiority distance them from any pity or understanding from the average audience member.

Redacted is hell to sit through, but I think De Palma is bravely trying to imagine his way inside an atrocity, and that he's onto something powerful with his multisided approach.

Critics have called the movie crude and punishing. All right, the defense concedes all that, but the movie does a harrowing job of depicting the psychological toll of the occupation on both Iraqis and U.S. soldiers.

If you're trying to make us believe we're watching 'reality' by using a faux documentary style, you need actors who never look like they are acting, and this is where Redacted stumbles.
