Review for The Invisible War NR
The Invisible War is a documentary about how 1 in 3 women are raped
in the military. The movie relates the experiences of a few
different women who are all telling much the same stories about how
they were sexually abused in the Army, Air Force and Marines.
Even the most prestigious Marine base in Washington DC is not immune
to this problem, apparently. After Leon Panetta watched this
movie, he ordered that commanders are no longer the people to report
rape to in their units (since the movie documents so many cases of
commanders ignoring complaints and/or retaliating against people who
were complaining). The movie ends by recommending that people visit
the web site www.notinvisible.org.
This movie was given an iffy rating for violence even though it has
way more than 20 violent scenes in it. Most of these were
women and men relating their stories about being raped. There were
only 4 scenes of on screen violence, of people firing guns in war or
at a 21 gun salute or showing a violent video game in the
background. This movie has no smoking.
The previews include three nonviolent commercials and nonviolent
previews for Hyde Park On The Hudson, Beasts Of The Southern Wild
and Won't Back Down.
