A powerful film, going beyond the casualty statistics and minute-long news clips to provide a sense of what it must be like for the guys and girls over there.

Frank and fascinating, "Gunner Palace" brings the Iraqi War home, putting the dangerous and boring lives of U.S. soldiers into equally provocative perspective.

It's a fascinating, sometimes furious, sometimes funny film about the soldiers in one unit in Baghdad, videotaped from a fly-on-the-wall perspective.
