I saw this film at it's London premiere at the Odeon West End as part
of the London Film Festival.
I guess Nick Broomfield was getting sick & tired of seeing Michael
Moore ripping off his Documentary style so made this his Second feature
film in as many years. Like the earlier film, Ghosts
(www.imdb.com/title/tt0872202/), the Battle for Haditha is based on
The film tells story of the events of November 19, 2005, when a troop
of US Marines exact revenge for an earlier attack which killed one of
their number in the Iraqi town of Haditha.
The Film focuses on three different viewpoints, the first of Iraqi
insurgents, which in this case isn't some mad Mullah but an old man,
who we learn is an ex-Army officer and his son. The second focuses on a
Corporal Ruiz, a young Marine who you feel wants to be anywhere but
Iraqi and the finally the film focuses on a young Iraqi couple and
their extended family.
The film is shot Cinéma-vérité style and at times is very harrowing.
But it's to Broomfields credit that he to my mind he doesn't simply
demonize the US soldiers. Instead you get to understand how young men
put in a situation that you the viewer couldn't understand let alone
cope with, could just lose it after a comrade is killed. Likewise, in
the films portrayal of the insurgent fighters Broomfield manages to
make you think what would you do, if, as in the film, your a
professional soldier made jobless by a an Occupying force. How do you
feed your family, and wouldn't you feel some resentment to the
occupation forces for making you jobless. But it's in the Iraqi
families, caught between the US forces and the Insurgents that the film
is at it's best. They can't do the right thing for doing wrong. It is
they who bear the brunt of either Insurgency retaliation or US Forces
heavy-handedness. They who ultimately will and are the losers in Film.
This is a powerful film which deals with all aspects of the problem
fair mindedly, but doesn't shy away from the truth. Don't let those who
haven't watched the film put you off seeing the best portrayal of the
War on Terror to date.
