The Ground Truth, Patricia Foulkrod (2006)

Foulkrod’s hugely irritating penchant for melodramatic music and editing threatens to ruin this documentary about the psychological and physical toll combat takes on soldiers, but the intelligence, passion, and honesty of the veterans, family members, and caregivers she interviews burn through the claptrap of the mise en scene. Minor and scattered but nevertheless illuminating.

  1. Holy cats, Joel–I cannot believe how much culture you consume. A huge pleasure catching up! Forgive my overlooking all of the serious things you have to say about the war to comment just this: hilarious comment on “Shaun of the Dead.”
