How do I convey what a loss it is to America that Habeas Corpus is a thing of the past? That we have a military that engages in the harshest brutality, tries to cover it up, and, then, in a last craven act of cowardice, allows only the lower-echelon troops to take the fall? I know the economy right now is bad. (I'll have more to say on that subject in a moment.) But, PLEASE, you OWE it to yourself to see this movie before you or a loved one joins the military at this point in American history. Because anyone joining the military right now opens themselves up to the real possiblity that they may have to perform unspeakable acts that they may not be able to live with. And THEN you will wind up having your life RUINED with jail time and a Dishonorable Discharge when the military has you take the fall for its policies. That's not just food for thought before making a life-changing decision. It's a six-course MEAL! There is no excuse for this. I don't care if 15 nuclear bombs went off on 9/11. This country cannot torture innocent people. When it does, it becomes no different from any other corrupt, decadent empire that history eventually brought to its knees. The people you will meet in this movie are unforgettable: The Afghan family who said good-bye to a son, father and brother named Dalimar who was so proud to have a new taxi to earn a living for himself. Dalimar, who they never saw again after he was taken out of his taxi, unjustly arrested by the US military and beaten to death. You will meet members of our military who carried out barbarism while in a fog. Who were complimented by their superiors one day. And then hung out to dry with prison sentences the next. They are lost, broken people. You will meet a former prisoner, a lucky survivor who was a British citizen. The British government secured his release after 15 months of torture. He documents the vicious cruelty that went on around him. I had a course in college on the Holocaust and remember when a survivor came and spoke to us to bear witness to what had happened. I had the same feeling listening to this man. You will hear from legal scholars of all political stripes who condemn this behavior, with the exception of John Woo, a MONSTER who wrote worthless legal memos, twisting the Constitution to the point where it had NO meaning anymore, to try to justify this barbarism. Looking at this powerful film 5 years after it was made, I'm struck by 2 things: First, I want Alex Gibney to make a SEQUEL. Gitmo is still open. We are still in Afghanistan. We need to hold the government's feet to the fire until the most shameful, tragic chapter in American history since slavery can be closed. And the second point? This country is in an economic mess right now, mainly due to overspending on the wars which caused this nightmare of American torture of innocent civilians while an unregulated Wall Street went wild. GOOD! Because that's OUR tax money that went to this madness. That's OUR military in OUR uniforms who did it. It was done in OUR name, whether we voted for those who approved it or not. And Karma has a way of catching up to violent, corrupt countries that torture innocents with impunity. Just ask any German who remembers WWII.

(kr) wrote: Murder, suicide, disease, insanity, and a shitload of broken windows. That seals it, I'm moving to Black River Falls. This was a fantastic documentary(?) based on the book of the same name which tells the true story of a small town in the late 1800s and early 1900s which descends into insanity. The story is so crazy it's hard to believe that it's true. Actually, if you take a look at the fucked up world around us I guess it may be harder to believe that it doesn't happen more often.

(au) wrote: I would down vote this movie for having Sarah Silverman in it, but...Wreck-it Ralph, breaks a LOT of defining stereotypes when we think about 'the bad guy/bully/villain' in society and completely ignores the characters obvious 'masculine' characteristics for a change. It is also a bad a** parody of video games and features both new and old characters from franchises which most of the younger generation of gamers probably never got the chance to know... still don't know why Sonic the Hedgehog was in the arcade though. But anyhow... the movie started a long tradition of 'de-vilifying' misunderstood and often times tragic history characters with a couple of flaws and even showcased one of the 'last deaths' of a Disney villain in an animated movie(if you think I'm joking, here are the animated tales which followed: Monster's University, Planes, Frozen, Big Hero 6, The Tinker Bell Franchise, Inside Out, The good Dinosaur, Zootopia, Finding Dory and Moana; yeah not a single villain death sequence).
