This was another one of those non-mold fitting movies. First off, there is no real plot. It is more of a time slice of some guys life. A string of events played out on the screen. It may have been the most accurate portrayl of what most experience in today's "wars". Movie comes from some marine's memior so maybe that is why. The movie left me as empty feeling as the marines they showed. After the movie I felt nothing in particular. My mind didn't even run rampant with thoughts. I keep thinking about the after war problems that were touched on in the movie. How a soldier is always a soldier even after the war. I don't know what else to say about this movie. Fuck the politics for now I just keep thinking about the soldier. Not being a veteran I don't know how this movie affects people who have been to war. Specifically Gulf War and the current conflict. I just wonder how truthful it is. See this movie if for nothing else to finally see a movie about war not cast in the typical hollywood mold.
