Where have all the flowers gone?
16 June 2006 | by (St Helena CA) – See all my reviews

This is theater - do not expect to be "entertained" in the movie sense

  • and do not expect a bunch of jokes. The over the top imagery and


dialog is leavened with real quotes from news outlets and uncensored stories (Jessica Lynch). This is a very black comedy, an emotional ride. The laughs come out of the discomfort not slapstick. The "America
  • Love It or Leave It" crowd will be up in arms. I know there will be


many who dispute the truth of the message that Tim Robbins is conveying. This will be attacked as unAmerican, unpatriotic, ungrateful, and slanderous. I for one, am glad Mr. Robbins has had the courage to produce this.
