Battle for Haditha (Nick Broomfield)

Anyone seen this yet? Saw it yesterday at a film festival here in Helsinki and was blown away. A powerful film.b,121b,121img src="
I thought it was good, but not all that remarkable. Like Battle of Algiers made by a lesser talent. Worth watching, though.
There's a documentary on the exact same incident, that's well worth watching for some perspective. (Don't know if it a proper release,1they were both shown on British tv at the same time.) But there were a few discrepancies between the recorded 'facts' and what Bloomfield put forward. Not that his version is a lie,1or a falsification, but it's interesting to see where he took some artistic license.
