Interesting Perspective on Iraq

by Michael Tucker (III)

Gunner Palace is definitely worth seeing as it gives a different perspective on the presence of American soldiers in Iraq. We get to see the day-to-day lives of a range of people in Iraq as things change. It’s well-shot and well edited, but the structure of the film didn’t really let me connect with what was going on. While parts of it were shot in a cinema verité style, the presence of the filmmaker narrating pulled me out of the events that were happening. It’s an important historical document and a glimpse inside a world that many people will never see or have forgotten about.
