Redacted (2007)

The reconstruction of the rape and murder of a 15-year-old Iraqi girl by American soldiers in Samarra in 2006.

Effective and harrowing anti-war movie made in a semi-documentary style very unusual for its director.

Maltin*1/2: "Misguided attempt...Unsavory aspects of the story overwhelm it, while the uniformly amateurish acting completely defeats whatever message was intended."
