Important and timely film
20 May 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Joe's War is a very effective and relevant film. It focuses on the rapidly growing PTSD epidemic that's claiming the lives of many American veterans.

The film follows Joe (Michael Markiewicz) a soldier returning home from two tours in Afghanistan who can no longer face the "normality" of everyday life after experiencing the horrors of war.

It isn't long before Joe turns to alcohol and the relationships with his friends, family and girlfriend begin to deteriorate. A psychiatrist (Armand Assante) and a fellow veteran (Louis Vanaria) may be the only two people who can save him from total self-destruction.

This is what the Hurt Locker would be if it followed the Jeremy Renner character once he returned home. Now this isn't an all out war film but it does feature some very graphic battle scenes that are hard to shake.

I highly recommend this film. It's a great character study and it brings awareness to a very critical issue in our country.
