Green Zone (2010)

Faced with absolutely no repercussions for having fabricated the WMD threat in Iraq, Paul Greengrass helps put the lie into perspective with this thriller set in Baghdad.

Captain Miller is charged with securing sites where weapons of mass destruction are said to be located around Iraq after the US invasion in 2002. He's frustrated after each mission because the sites are turning up empty. Miller turns his energy to finding who the source is for the intelligence.

There is smart drama in this film and it gives a powerful sense of what Iraq was like in the first days of the war. It does a magnificent job giving the hawk and dove perspectives and what they project Iraq to be - kind of a thriller No End in Sight.
