Anyone thinking of enlisting in the Army might want to take a look at Army of One, a compelling documentary by Canadian Sarah Goodman.

Jan 27, 2005 | Rating: 3/4

Sarah Goodman's first feature-length documentary, Army of One, puts a bitterly ironic spin on the Army's best-known recruiting slogan, 'Be all that you can be.'
