Body of War Reviews

Prairie Miller
WBAI Radio

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.

The doc gets up-close and personal. It shows one injured vet's reality after war.

Whatever you think of the film, Body of War stirs up real admiration for its subject.

"Body of War" is so simple-minded and ham-handed in its case against the war that it ends up diluting its own argument.

Body of War is a powerful and effective documentary because it keeps its focus very tight and makes its story vivid in personal terms.

The lack of ego and relatively little self-pity [wheelchair-bound Tomas] Young has is astounding.

Donahue and Spiro should've spent more time exploring the human moments and much less time browbeating us with stuff we already know.

It's the soldier in Iraq who fights on in the face of public apathy at home. The hope in this vital film is that the voices of soldiers will be raised. They will fight on until their mission is accomplished and the Iraq war is history.

[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.'

The overreaching Spiro and Donahue are not content to persuade viewers; they insist on convincing us.

It is not merely an antiwar document, but a complex profile in courage of a paraplegic and patriot.

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 neither the most cinematic nor the most elegantly crafted of recent Iraq war documentaries, but that doesn't stop it from being one of the most deeply affecting.

A chance to witness the struggles of a remarkable young man. Young may be paralyzed in the body, but his mind is fiercely alive.

Half an excellent and touching profile of a young veteran, but unfortunately, half a strident anti-war propaganda film.

Phil Donahue and Ellen Spiro's powerful documentary takes a microcosmic look at the war and its devastation by focusing on a single casualty.
