For example, "Taxi To The Dark Side" is a movie about the U.S. policy on torture and not really an 'Iraq movie', though a good chunk of it does deal with Abu Ghraib. - Matty commented that "Stop-Loss" is basically "Varsity Blues" goes to war. Am I crazy, or were the marketing folks apparently thinking the same thing? Check out the posters here and here. - Who is Sargent Shriver? Find out here. - A Tale of Two Pedros by Michael Atkinson.
