Timeless and more relevant than ever in the face of permanent US war against the world, Redacted has prophetically conjured a parallel US war, targeting journalists and filmmakers. And in an ironic case of redacting the director and his film as well.

Brian De Palma's feature-length fictionalized polemic, Redacted, expresses its outrage with a ferocity that takes mainstream protest of the Iraq war into new territory.

The director's concern is deeply felt, yet it is his old obsession, the camera's unreliability, that still engages him the most

The way De Palma stitches this multimedia montage into a damning narrative is cinema at its angry and exhilarating best.

Abrave film for De Palma, obviously deeply felt, but the final scene - a steady collage of real pictures of victims of the conflict - offer a more visceral pull than anything that has gone before.

A very easy film to dismiss but there is more to it than meets the eye.

Calling the movie anti-soldier misses the despair with which DePalma views the troops' situation.

But, no matter what its aesthetic and political virtues, it's hard to imagine anyone wanting to put themselves through the experience of Redacted, particularly those who already `get it.'
December 14, 2007
As a manipulator of images and emotions, De Palma has few equals, and this is his most gripping film in at least a decade.

Brian De Palma's documentary-style fiction film Redacted is a bristling act of protest that obliterates a target it isn't aiming for.

Redacted is as much a cinematic experiment as a movie, a deconstruction of our ideas of objectivity, subjectivity, and the way we relate to screen characters.

It's a movie you should force yourself to see, as an American citizen because you're morally obligated not to look away, or as a filmmaker because this is how you shoot war.

Where Casualties of War had the swooning formal elegance of an opium dream, Redacted adopts the fractured fitfulness of a seizure.

De Palma is extreme, visceral, usually in bad taste but almost always riveting.
