Whereas the Vietnam War has long ago provided us with a cascade of drugs, conspiracy, hallucinatory, and tortured visions of vets, some of which turned out to be true despite being told within a fictional film, Iraq hasn't given us any before Time Bomb.
While the overall story qualifies as conspiracy fiction, it does weave plenty of realities into the film. And while the nature of the story requires a lot of jumping around that can cause confusion, that's really part of the point of the film. In any event, the ending is very clear and strips away any remaining confusion - or denial - that the craziness may have left behind.
One of the weaknesses of the film is also a strength in the way it was pulled off. Even though hat is and what is not real becomes confusing at times, it fits the story. And because of the consistency in the story, even those that can't follow it all the way through still get the essence of the story repeatedly. That may sound a bit boring if your attention span is in working order, but there are no shortage of twists to keep things weird and interesting.
