RUSH TO WAR
2004, 86 min, Dir: Robert Taicher

Subtitled “Between Iraq and a hard place,” this documentary directed by Robert Taicher (THE HOLY MOUNTAIN, ENDLESS POETRY) is a scathing indictment of the 2003 invasion of Iraq and subsequent years of conflict that cost thousands of lives and hundreds of billions of dollars. Featuring interviews with such experts as former CentCom commander Anthony Zinni, former chief U.N. weapons inspector Scott Ritter, Sen. George McGovern and others, this powerful film illuminates a “war of choice” whose consequences are still felt today. “A powerful film, frightening in what it says about the U.S. under Bush, the war in Iraq and the ‘war on terror.’” – historian Howard Zinn.
