Brian De Palma United States, 2007

Julian Renard's rating of the film Redacted

My first Brian de Palma. The least I can say is that I'm not disappointed! The fascinating theme of Iraq's war is explored through various lenses. Each media has its own set of technical, political and ethical rules. Pretty violent, the rough details of the war are offered by De Palma himself, closing the loop with his own lens. Astonishing, questioning and esthetic in a bothering way: that makes 5 stars for me
