Fighting for Life puts courageous faces on men and women who might otherwise be anonymous statistics at a time when injured soldiers are rarely seen on TV.
Though in surer hands, the class's simulated mass-casualty situation, replete with ghoulish prosthetic wounds, might've been a masterpiece.
will prove deeply moving to audience members of any political persuasion.
Fighting for Life is essential viewing at a time when, five years on, the war's human cost is still too often mired in partisan rhetoric and administration spin.
Shot in battlefield hospitals in Iraq and rehab centers in the United States, Fighting for Life takes an unflinching look at the physical sacrifices of soldiers and marines.
The result isn't pro-war, just pro cleaning up the mess, one amputee at a time.
If you're wondering where the heroes went, take a look at this group, and see if you're not impressed.
Specialist Crystal Davis' story reflects many stories, her life changed forever, her efforts to meet all kinds of unanticipated challenges.
The no-frills yet deeply gripping manner this film uses to document this brave soldier's struggle for survival, then in rehab, should draw a salute from military personnel and civilians as well.
Sanders provides a rare glimpse into the world of the doctors and nurses tasked with saving lives in difficult circumstances. You cannot leave Fighting for Life without a deep sense of respect for the medical personnel and the patients.
The graphic imagery drives home the toll that war takes without the need for sermonizing.
Though Maryland's Uniformed Services University has been dubbed "Useless U" and has come close to being shuttered, Terry Sanders' simply shot digital film is an inelegant but potent argument for its existence.
