If we ever felt like the soldiers and interrogators seen here were in any way human, Winterbottom and Whitecross' indictment of their behavior would hit twice as hard.

Guided terror tour of US atrocity culture.

Raw, riveting filmmaking that shines a light on the dark underbelly of the 'war on terror.' . . . a searing exposé of how badly our supposedly democratic, rights-upholding part of the world has lost its way since September 11.
August 25, 2006
What happened to them was an accident, but what was done to them is a cautionary tale of how the treatment of prisoners reflects on their captors, and how such treatment can breed the very things we fear: defiant, hardened enemies of the West.

The conception doesn't work perfectly.... Still, the film is muscular, persuasive, and necessary without being exploitative.
