Synopsis
Director Brian De Palma turns his lens on the Iraq War with this "fictional documentary" about the experience of U.S. soldiers involved in the conflict. Based on a news item about the rape of an Iraqi schoolgirl by wayward grunts assigned to patrol a checkpoint, the film depicts a scenario not unlike the one De Palma covered in Casualties of War. Shot on high-definition video, Redacted also addresses the ever-evolving manner in which war is covered by the media by focusing on such journalistic innovations as blog coverage and web reporting. ~ Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide

I got this based on De Palma's very interesting interview with Elvis Mitchell on KCRW. Listen to the interview, but don't bother with the movie.

Obviously the distributor doesn't care about it either--the movie is proceeded by 4 ads.
