    It uses realism as an effect, documentary as a style. You feel that you're really there, and you can't help but be moved.

    It neither demonizes nor lionizes either side of the conflict, aiming for just-the-ugly facts objectivity. Nobody who sees it is likely to feel comforted, or even vindicated. The emotion it most frequently and fervently inspires is sorrow.
