Brothers at War 

Producer-director Jake Rademacher admits he made this documentary to get closer to his brothers Isaac and Joe, both of whom are in the military, serving in Iraq. As a result, the film’s more a tribute to American soldiers and their families than a critique of a highly controversial war. In fact, no one in the film ever says anything negative about either Bush or the war. Not a single naysayer. Seems kinda strange. Not that Rademacher didn’t put his heart and soul into the thing. The guy fearlessly threw himself into the line of the fire and came back with some graphic footage of the kind of chaos the soldiers there face on a daily basis. But he should have saved the clips of him embracing his brothers and bonding with family members for the family reunion. Cedar Lee Theatre. HH
