Standard Operating Procedure (2008)

Errol Morris

Tata dokumentarnog "trilera" opet je u kuci, ovaj put u pitanju je svima dobro poznat skandal (chuj skandal) kad su americhki vojnici muchili i na najgore nachine ponizavali zarobljenike, navodne muslimanske teroriste u Irachkom Abu Ghraib zatvoru , i sve to naravno slikali shto ih je i uzjebalo na kraju. Svi se secamo nekih od tih fotografija, goli ljudi na gomili, muchenje strujom (ej pa to zvuchi poznato ?!) i ostala maltretiranja najgore vrste i ona midzet zena-vojnik, uzas bre, uzas. Znachi ovaj film je uperen direktno protiv U.S. vojske i tog sistema prepunog korupcije, pure uncut ZLA i to bez ikakih kompromisa. 20 godina posle surovog dokumentarca o policijskim brutalnostima i bahacenjima, korumpiranom sudstvu i nepravdi koja unistava svaki smisao postojanja choveka kao individue - kultnog "The Thin Blue Line" Eroll prelazi na sledece nivo drzavno sponzorisanog nasilja, vojsku prepunu psihopata. Ali posto je film tek izasao necu mnogo da ga bacam, pogledajte, necete se pokajati, Errol Morris barem nikad nije izdo. 2 sata najboljeg real life trilera - that's for sure.


"Master filmmaker Errol Morris turns his keen eye to the Abu Ghraib prison scandal in this intense and provocative documentary. Using interviews with the soldiers that appeared in the now infamous torture photos, Morris strings their stories together with vivid reenactments and striking digital technology for a wrenching look at the events at the prison. With his trademark straight-into-the-lens interview style, it is chilling to see the familiar faces of Lynndie England and Sabrina Harmon as they try to articulate their experiences. The lawlessness and confusion in the prison quickly become evident, and as their stories unfold, the film slowly strips away the many puzzling questions that surround the incidents, exposing a much larger truth about corruption within the US military, corruption that appears to reach far beyond the handful of soldiers that took the fall for the scandal. Morris's reenactments are extremely vivid, and often shot in a beautifully cinematic style. While these techniques make for riveting film making, they are sometimes considered controversial by documentary purists, and some might criticize his detailed recreations of such deeply disturbing events. However, others might deem the reenactments necessary to really bringing home the reality of what happened. Regardless of his methods, Morris does a masterly job of untangling such a complex, twisted story. He shines a glaring light on one of America's most shameful moments and, more importantly, exposes how little we truly know about our military's methods."
