** BODY OF WAR, from co-directors Phil Donahue and Ellen Spiro, is arguably
the most nakedly truthful documentary to date about the real effects of the
Iraq war on one soldier, his family and friends.  Both vociferously
political and haunting poetic, BODY OF WAR offers a poignant look at the
life of a true American hero who went to war one kind of patriot and came
home a very different kind.  Mapped against an expertly edited selection of
congressional testimony demonstrating how rhetoric, unsupported assertions
and fear tactics duped the American public into supporting the deployment of
U.S. troops into Iraq, the film ultimately becomes - in its own powerful way
- an anti-war national anthem.  BODY OF WAR and its accompanying soundtrack
(featuring original songs by Eddie Vedder) are coming out as the nation and
the world focuses on the 5th anniversary of the U.S. invasion of Iraq on
March 19-20, 2008.
