Because no improvement can be made on the words written by Stephanie Zacharek, a critic at Salon.com, I shall repeat them for you, my brothers and sisters: "Of all the war-themed pictures that have been released so far this fall, it stands apart, and it stands alone: Redacted is confrontational, rough, immediate and confounding." This is the truth: Brian De Palma's Redacted is the first important fictional film about the war that refuses to end and kills too many by the day. (See Movie Times for details.)
