Brilliant Documentary
16 June 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This documentary exposes a little-known reality in a California desert. A real-life simulation of Iraq is constructed to train soldiers before they head off to the war. This documentary unveils the facts and conditions of the training facility, and the audience is left to judge and decide for themselves the meaning and significance of the training facility.

The very fact that this documentary exposes the existence of this place already makes it worth seeing. The documentary intricately sews together the fabrics of the many lives involved in this training facility, taking the audience through the subtleties of this multi-faceted environment.

This documentary is stimulating and entertaining, giving the audience access to a place usually unnoticed. Their website is just as interesting: http://www.fullbattlerattlemovie.com/
