Well Intentioned but amateurish at times
11 July 2010 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Although this film is well intentioned it does have some amateurish qualities to it. It is about an Iraq war veteran and he is experiencing post traumatic stress. Dash Mihok plays this role of the returning veteran very well – which is less than I can say for the person (Spencer Clark) who is allegedly filming the documentary on him.

The style is cinema-verite which I found gave a voyeuristic feel. Also there are these useless diversions – shots of the sky, the trees in the forest…. And what was the point of showing these ballet dancers? They had absolutely nothing to do with the topic. Plus some of the conversations with Spencer Clark seemed to drift needlessly – too much self-absorption.

But the overall theme of PTSD is very sympathetically handled – at times riveting.
