Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Amid the continuing deluge of documentaries about the war in Iraq, Patricia Foulkrod's film The Ground Truth stands out as an especially pointed indictment of the American military's treatment of its own people on and off the battlefield. – Stephen Holden, New York Times, Jul 16, 2008

Fresh: The voices of these brave young people reverberate hauntingly. – Claudia Puig, USA Today, Sep 1, 2007

Fresh: The substance of the movie is potent, and so powerfully presented by those who have fought and are still fighting a controversial war, that the message of Ground Truth cannot be dismissed. – John Anderson, Variety, Jul 7, 2010

Fresh: This thoughtful, sensitive film, perhaps the most emotionally wrenching of all the Iraq documentaries, could have been made after any war. – Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times, Sep 20, 2007
