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."
Which took place June 7th in Hollywood
at The Academy Of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences Linwood
Dunn Theatre to a sold out audience! This is a tremendoes honor
for Soldier and we only hope to see more as the project develops
and gains exposure.
