Film Comment - 07/01/2008
"[T]he film's most lasting image is of foreign intervention destined for disaster at the dry-run phase, let alone in the field."

Product Description:

FULL BATTLE RATTLE is a revelatory look at the soul of the American war machine – an astonishing journey inside a once top-secret military base where U.S. soldiers train to confront a new kind of enemy.
In California's Mojave Desert, the U.S. Army has built a billion dollar urban warfare simulation – a cluster of towns and villages modeled on counterparts in the Middle East, complete with full-time residents played by Iraqi Americans. With un-restricted access, the filmmakers follow an Army Battalion through the simulation as they attempt to bring peace and prosperity to one village perched on the brink of civil war. As the mood in the village shifts from friendly banter to violent clashes, the Battalion struggles to win the respect of the townsfolk and defeat an insurgency played, ironically, by American soldiers.
From the moment this stunningly realistic war game begins, the stakes are high and the emotions at fever pitch. As reality and fantasy collide, FULL BATTLE RATTLE moves from comic to surreal to poignant – revealing the challenges and perhaps futility in “liberating” people half a world away.
