TOP 500 REVIEWERon June 30, 2009
I'm an Errol Morris fan, and this fascinating, yet disturbing documentary takes a revealing look at the military personnel who were either specifically uninformed or too inexperienced to handle the questionable orders from higher ranks. The consistent theme of personal consciousness conflicting with military orders, is not resolved. But to refuse any order would be an immediate career killer, so this film presents a constant hard-hitting catch 22. The not surprising result is a lot of lower rank scapegoating. Ultimately, there were only a few notes mentioning those with the longest prison terms, but I would have appreciated a 'wrap-up' of all the film's interviewees. As one observer notes of the outcome, "there were a lot of bodies thrown under the bus".
