The Prisoner Or: How I Planned to Kill Tony Blair Reviews

This is the story of how an Iraqi journalist was terrorized by the "freedom" of the USA occupation.
This is a deep-thought kind of documentary, parts of the film are "lightened" by comic-book style animation throughout. This comic-book technique leads credence to the idea that, in my opinion, the invasion of Iraq was completely a comical farce.
This documentery compliments "No end in sight" and "Control Room", both excellent documentaries on the operation Iraqi "Freedom".

After a few months of this, humane replacement soldiers made a bad situation somewhat bearable.(Along with some illustrated stills, the documentary is mostly Yunis telling his story to the camera. The only other person interviewed is a soldier from that replacement unit.) Under Saddam Hussein, Yunis was tortured in 1998. But as Miss Manners can tell you, it does not make a good impression when the new boss is not much better than the old boss. [/font]
