Jarhead (US, 2005)

Subject of a typically confused Sight and Sound review: it’s different and too conventional. As a genre movie it’s bound to use conventions and it’s the differences that are interesting (like no one gets to shoot anybody – it’s Gulf War 1). Some extremely effective set pieces: the hell of the road out of Basra and the burning oil wells. Great cast and well directed. (DVD) http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0418763/
