“An amazingly vigorous work. (De Palma’s) strongest cinematic and political statement at least since Casualties of War. The movie is a cry of national shame; for De Palma, it’s a new badge of honor for a wily old vet.” – Richard Corliss, TIME

“THE MOVIE EVERYONE WILL BE TALKING ABOUT. I hope that it makes people livid, that it’s furiously debated. De Palma makes me proud to be an American.” – David Edelstein, New York Magazine

“The only Iraq film I would rank alongside No End In Sight in the category of ESSENTIAL VIEWING.” – LA Weekly

“De Palma’s anger and frustration with the media course through REDACTED like an electrical current.” – Salon

A fictional story inspired by true events, REDACTED is a cinematic rallying cry from one of film's greatest provocateurs, Brian De Palma. REDACTED radically engages viewers in the way images and information is disseminated in a time of war. A profound meditation on the way information is packaged, distributed and received in an era with infinite channels of communication, REDACTED exposes the extreme disconnect between the manipulation of images and information and the truth, especially timely as opposition to the Iraq War continues to mount.

Centered around a small group of American soldiers stationed at a checkpoint in Iraq, REDACTED utilizes multiple points of view, balancing the experiences of these young men under duress and the media with those of the local Iraqi people caught in between, illuminating how each have been deeply affected by the Iraq war and the implications of redacting or editing on all of us. A passionate anti-war film, Brian De Palma's REDACTED is a thrilling return to form for the filmmaker and an urgent call to put an end to the current conflict in Iraq.
