The Grade: A+
"A short film based on a spoken word piece? Yes. And it works. So well, in fact, that I could imagine it being embraced by both veterans of actual combat whoÕve lived to tell the tale, and those of us adamantly opposed to the act of war."

5 Star Review!
"Soldier is raw, visceral, furious and brilliant. Pico and Bianchi have crafted a perfect film. I wish every American would see “Soldier” ­ especially those who voted to send America’s youth into the Iraq slaughterhouse."
