This very adult thriller dissects the lies that were told to enable and maintain the 2003 invasion of Iraq. Adapted from Rajiv Chandrasekaran's brilliant 2007 non-fiction book 'Imperial Life in the Emerald City: Inside Iraq's Green Zone', this is a brave and intelligent attempt to engage with a very recent history and its implications of governmental abuse of all of us. Muscular, sexless and deterministic filmmaking - undoubtedly the best thing Greengrass has done to date.
This film is not currently showing in cinemas.
