Critic Reviews for America At A Crossroads: Operation Homecoming: Writing The Wartime Experience

All Critics (21) | Top Critics (11)

  • Richard E. Robbins's straightforward Operation Homecoming has enlightening moments as it presents writing by American soldiers who have served in Iraq and Afghanistan.

  • Operation Homecoming never quite captures anything so poignant or precise, rather falling into seemingly endless variations of 'war is hell.'

    Apr 9, 2007 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • It provides an illuminating portrait of the mind-set of those men and women serving overseas.

  • The anthology format would fit better on TV, as would director Richard E. Robbins' unfortunate use of cheesy slo-mo re-enactments. When Robbins flickers through a series of photos of the fallen, the rapid cutting becomes absurd and dehumanizing.

    Feb 9, 2007 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • The cumulative effect of Operation Homecoming is to bring to light the soldiers' collective experiences and the enduring nightmares they suffer in our place.
