Re: “'Sand Castle' unpacks Operation Iraqi Futility

From an Iraq War combat veteran: No. There wasn't much there that felt very authentic, and certainly nothing "cathartic" or "comforting". This was a paint-by-number rendition devoid of depth. Worse, the film appears to have somehow confirmed your own flawed preconceived notions about what it was like or what it meant. This film was bland and instantly forgettable. While you're waiting for THE film about the Iraq War, for God's sake READ the multitude of authentic accounts. There are a lot of great books out there, and they can certainly help inform any future reviews you might tackle.
