Redacted

Redacted ★★ 2007 (R)

A group of soldiers, compromised by the experience of war, find themselves in increasingly brutal and amoral situations, culminating in the group rape and murder of a 15-year-old girl. Izzy Diaz (Salazar), who's filming his experiences in Iraq in hopes of getting into film school, is disgusted by the actions of his comrades but fears retribution if he reports them. DePalma, who addressed similar issues in “Casualties of War,” uses true stories from the Iraq War as inspiration and a “fictional documentary” technique, in which the entire film appears to be composed of assembled footage shot by Diaz, documentary makers, or other “real” sources. Story is powerful but ultimately heavy-handed, and the performances are inconsistent. Intense, depressing, and highly divisive, the pic received accusations of anti-American bias and bombed at the box office. 90m/C DVD . US CA Kel O'Neill, Pat Carroll, Izzy Diaz, Rob Devaney, Daniel Stewart Sherman, Ty Jones; D: Brian De Palma; W: Brian De Palma; C: Jonathan Cliff.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
