Brian De Palma United States, 2007

Duncan Gray's rating of the film Redacted

Generally, Brian De Palma doesn't give a fuck about verisimilitude: his images are consciously images, hence this mash-up of old war movie cliches and new digital media, with the realities of 21st century combat residing in there somewhere. It's a brilliant, provocative concept, and the execution can't keep up. But it deserves to be seen. None of the other Movie Brats were doing anything this ballsy circa 2007.
