Body of War Reviews
My other interests lie in how it portrays disability. And for that I give it low marks. Some of that has to do with the fact that Thomas Young is still trying to figure out what it means to have acquired disability. So it‚??s very much a medical model and deficit outlook on disability. This is what‚??s wrong with you and here‚??s how we‚??re going to fix it. Thomas even says he gets jealous of people who can walk‚?¶.so it shows he is still trying to figure out himself in relation to his new body. The movie does show some of the issues PWD face on a daily basis...but I think it shows a much stronger testament to how recklessly we went to war.
