Movie: Gunner Palace

More info at Amazon

Initially I thought this documentary featured the same palace Ann’s brother Randy, an army Lieutenant, had written to us about, but I think it’s a different Hussein family palace. I don’t regret the choice, though. This film mostly gives a voice to soldiers on the ground near Baghdad, letting them talk (or sing, or rap) about the experience in their own way with a minimum of spin. It does more looking around than arguing or accusing. That’s certainly a relief to me.
