So real that it hurts
21 February 2020 | by davalewSee all my reviews

The storyline, the writing, the acting, the direction, the camera work and the locations all contribute to a worryingly explicit revelation of Iraq after the gung ho went home. I can even forgive the strange subtitle and dubbing decisions where the Iraqi characters speak English to their occupiers and Arabic to casual Iraqi contacts but speak English with Iraqi accents to each other in their homes even though you can see that the lip synchs is Arabic. I sense this is for the US market which is in total keeping with the message that the story tells about ineptitude and hubris in an occupation which failed as comprehensively as the military triumphed in the war which preceded it. Irritating in such a realistic drama but I can forgive even that because the production is so good.
