It's hard to snark on a documentary about the role of photography in the Abu Ghraib mess. We all obviously realize the role of photography, since photos were what the entire scandal was about. But this documentary (from the director of The Fog of War) takes a deeper look, with interviews from many of the soldiers involved, even Lindy England, the woman you might remember holding the leash in the most famous of the photos. She blames her actions on being in love with the corporal in charge at the prison, and doing whatever he says. I don't think he speaks in the doc, and it might have been even more complete if we could get that perspective, but still: It looks fascinating and enlightening, if you can stomach seeing any of those photos again (although, in the trailer at least, they only show tiny snippets of the photos)
