Another Iraq movie, this time a true story from Samarra about an atrocity committed by US troops. Not exactly gratifying, rape and murder rarely are, the film's narration may 'sympathise' with 'brutalised' squaddies, but the characters portrayed are thoroughly unpleasant. find out more...

With over two years of investigation, including the collection of a million and a half words of interview transcript, 'Standard Operating Procedure', from director Errol Morris, is the story behind the infamous photographs taken by US soldiers in Iraq's Abu Ghraib prison. Not as interesting or revelatory as you might hope, and hamstrung as Morris is by the fact that most of those interviewed aren't that bright or able to verbalise why they did what they did, and are only clear that they were hun find out more...

Stop-Loss is the process by which when American soldiers terms of service come to an end they find that their contract has been compulsorily extended. In this film three blue-collar Texas boys, who've had a hard time in Iraq, return to a civilian life which they can't adjust to and, for one, being press-ganged for another tour of duty is all too much and he legs it. find out more...

US Army Sergeant Will James, Sergeant JT Sanborn and Specialist Owen Eldridge comprise the Bravo Company's bomb disposal unit and it is their 38 days together in the chaotic and bloody period following the US/UK led occupation of Iraq that we closely follow. Sanborn plays it by the rules, Eldridge is insecure about his soldiering role and James is seen by his colleagues as a dangerously committed loose cannon and a threat to their survival chances. Hurt Locker is a slick, well directed, performe find out more...

A team of four FBI forensics experts are sent to Saudi Arabia after the mass killing of American oil workers. What begins as an investigation soon turns into a hard arsed fight and, damn, these boys and girls are up for it. "The Kingdom" is a well right of centre action-drama with a simplistic childlike view of the world. Just don't think too hard, slap your scruples in a dark draw and, as an action flick, it won't let you down. find out more...

From previous wars we've had poetry. books, diaries and consequential films, but never before a movie edited from home video shot by a soldier. US Marine artillery officer Scotti has done something unique in this video diary of the sea voyage out, the base camp in Kuwait, the long drive up to Baghdad, liberation and the consequent collapse into anarchy, and Scotti even manages to keep the camera running during firefights. Clips from the news media are interposed to keep us up to date with the ov find out more...

An action movie that also plays as a satire on the double standards of the Allies during the Gulf War; in particular the plight of the Kurds. A group of American soldiers go AWOL in search of a stash of hidden gold and find themselves doin' good for a band of refugees desperate to escape from Iraq. 'Three Kings' is an enjoyable if slightly confused movie, you can't help wishing they had gone for either action or satire, rather than attempting to squidge the two genres together. But, nevertheless find out more...

A helpful little documentary charting the run up to the Iraq war and the controversies that surround it. This film features interviews with some of the major players in the conflict, with additional arguments provided by political scientists and commentators of the day, including George W Bush, Dick Cheney, Colin Powell, Scott Ritter and Ray McGovern. The main focus of the film is on the misuse of information or 'intelligence', as they like to call it, and the apparent inconsistencies in the off find out more...

John Cusack plays Brand Hauser, a hitman hired to assassinate oil minister Omar Sharif in the fictional Middle-Eastern state of Turaqistan, which is now run by American private corporation Tamberlain. But upon encountering the beautiful and intelligent anti-corporation/anti-corruption journalist Natalie (Marisa Tomei) and the overly sexy but incredibly childlike Yonica Babyyeah (Hilary Duff), Hauser slowly falls into moral quandry. 'War Inc' is a political satire aimed at confronting the absurdi find out more...
