You will feel the WAR.....but isn't a Good Feelin'
10 May 2011 | by esteban_zombie13See all my reviews

James Gandolfini, makes the most powerful "About War" film, this film is an amazing masterpiece, the stories about post-traumatic and mental illness patients, its so sad, shows you that America isn't the good guys, WE ARE THE BAD GUYS!. I always support the war because i was thinking that this was Heroic, after watching this, i can't stop crying because those stories gonna touch your heart. "Im not the same person when i left", the words of an WWII Veteran, do you think war OK? KILL! KILL! KILL! KILL! they made you a MAD DOG! and America its a Big MAD MAD DOG!. "All this corpses still showing", James Gandolfini knows how to direct a documentary, the best documentary about War that i ever seen in my life, every scene its a Tear, Baghdad or Vietnam, ALL the SAME thing, they think a lot about War....but never about the soldiers. This is film is Totally recommended, its an amazing film, watch it and STOP supporting WAR.
