This is one of those documentary films that makes me so angry I could just chew nails. This is because of the awful way the victims of sexual assault are treated by the military establishment.

makes a compelling case that the military is, as a retired Army general says, "a target-rich environment" for sexual predators. It is a difficult film to watch, but it should be harder to ignore.

The Invisible War presents 98 minutes of outrage, delineating in painful detail how our country's military has failed so miserably in protecting the women and (in some cases) men who made the choice to serve this nation with courage, pride and dignity.

Even if you do not see this movie yourself, please encourage any young woman you know who is considering enlistment to watch this movie first.

Kirby Dick has again shown great restraint in presenting such inflammatory material, betting a clear-eyed approach will have an inflammatory effect on his audience -- and it does.

Basically, the message from the military to potential rape victims is: if you get raped, it's your own fault...

One of those documentaries that you watch both fascinated and repulsed - and one of those films that you sense just might be instrumental in helping to change an utterly unacceptable status quo.

"The Invisible War" makes all too clear that the military isn't very good at justice.

In the end there is something to cheer about - vindication for some victims, and proof that a film can make a difference.
