Documentary ‘Brothers at War’ is Heartfelt But Narrow in Scope

Rating: 2.5/5.0 Chicago – The market has been flooded with documentaries about the failure of the Iraq War, which makes the arrival of a human story about real people on the ground something notable and refreshing. Sadly, Jacob Rademacher’s “Brothers at War” is as myopic as any piece of “left-wing propaganda” about the failure of the war, missing both the big picture and the human one due to its filmmaker’s refusal to ask the dark questions.

“Brothers at War” is Jacob Rademacher’s film (Executive Produced by Gary Sinise) primarily about his two brother’s time in Iraq. Jake realizes that no research is going to fully give him the knowledge of what it feels like to be on the ground, so he heads overseas to try and walk a mile in his brother’s shoes.
