Kill or Be Killed: Krauss Meticulously Reassesses the Situation
Part courtroom drama, part frontline footage film contextualized by Morris-esque investigative interviews with those on trial for the murder of innocent Afghan citizens under the star spangled banner of the Us military, Dan Krauss’s incendiary documentary unveils the horrifying truths behind the media coined platoon, The Kill Team. Of the same ilk as The Invisible War, Kirby Dick’s recent inquisition into the military’s history of legal murkiness and systematic corruption, Krauss’s film sides with a young soldier named Adam Winfield whose reports to military authorities about the unprovoked killings of innocents within his platoon went ignored, until he himself was arrested alongside the men he was desperately trying to free himself from.
Winfield’s close-knit unit is shown dressed to the nines for Krauss’s interview, honestly sharing their versions of the events that took place with frightening candacy, »

HBO seems a little late to the game with True Detective, a series which centers around two mismatched detectives, Rust Cohle (Matthew McConaughey) and Martin Hart (Woody Harrelson), who, in 1995, investigate and solve the occult-like murder of Dora Lange, a young prostitute whose body is found in a section of a sugarcane forestry in the Louisiana countryside. Cut between the mid ’90s and present-day, the two detectives are called back for questioning when a similar case arises seventeen years later. With only eight episodes to tell its story, True Detective wastes no time in laying the groundwork. The story weaves back and forth from a present day interrogation, »
