A really good movie
27 June 2018 | by besheratSee all my reviews

Brian De Palma's film "Redacted", made in the form of documentary film, which gives more action and tension of true events in Iraq. We talk about the crimes covered up the U.S. military in Iraq, in peacetime 2006 g. The rape of 15-year-old girl and killing her family. Very startling film, with staff showing the true and original footage of the massacre in Iraq. I thought it was one of the many war movies, many of a hundred I watched. But, it pleasantly surprised me.
