The scale of practicing war as a game is colossal and hard to grasp at times. Stratman captures the events she depicts with wonder rather than disdain. Her thoughtful framing of images and meticulous editing help us understand the absurdity in this dark path.

PC. While i was thinking too much about James Benning (of which hints of "Ten Skies" and "RR" may be seen), i would hardly free myself to enjoy the autonomous language that this film presents, namely at the level of its narrative and editing times (very different from Benning's) and sound structure, quite soulful and interfluent with the images. "America the Beautiful", again x-rayed by its documentary filmmakers.
