Storyline

Winner of four Emmy(R) Awards, including Outstanding Directing for Nonfiction Programming (Jon Alpert, Matthew O'Neill)! The 86th Combat Support Hospital (CSH)--the U.S. Army's premier medical facility in Iraq and formerly one of Saddam Hussein's elite hospitals--is the setting for this unforgettable documentary that puts a human face on the war's cold casualty statistics. Directed by Emmy(R)-winner Jon Alpert (HBO's 'One Year in a Life of Crime'), the film profiles the doctors and nurses at the 86th who fight to save wounded soldiers who are Medevaced (helicoptered) in on a numbingly routine basis. In addition to capturing the drama of victims and caregivers in the ER, the film provides vivid frontline rescue footage with the 54th Medical Company Air Ambulance Team along with tension-filled scenes of soldiers patrolling what is considered the most dangerous road in the world: the five-mile highway from the Baghdad Airport to the CSH.

Excellent Film-making
5 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Having worked at the "Baghdad ER" I think this is an outstanding film. When I first saw it I was just sure it would be sensationalistic and exploitative. I was wrong. This film does have its graphic moments but is nowhere near as graphic as it could have been. Initially I also thought that the film would be anti-war. As I watched the film I was pleasantly surprised to note that it had no political message whatsoever. The film has no narrator and the only words are those spoken by the people actually in the documentary from Medics and nurses to physicians and the patients themselves. The film will, therefore, be different things to different people depending on who watches it and in what frame of mind. One person could call it anti-war where another could call it propaganda. I believe it to be neither and the mark of a great documentary. As a physician in the Army I was uplifted by this film realistically showing the work we do in Iraq and elsewhere in support of our front line soldiers. This film shows this beautifully and should be seen by everyone. The compassion for the soldiers, marines, sailors, airmen, and civilians treated at the CSH is real and happens there every hour of every day.
