UNCOVERING THE HORRIFIC TRUTH ABOUT ABU GHRAIB

S.O.P.: (Sony Pictures Classics) It's a story that must be told, and we're grateful that it's Errol Morris who has undertaken the challenge of exploring the horrors that took place at Iraq's infamous Abu Ghraib prison. Morris, arguably the finest documentary filmmaker of our time, is the man responsible for such sharp, provocative works as “Gates of Heaven,” “The Thin Blue Line,” “Mr. Death: The Rise and Fall of Fred A. Leuchter, Jr.” and “Fog of War.” You can count on him to shed light on the shameful, dark deeds committed at Abu Ghraib, sparing no one, not even those at the very top of the dung heap. "I feel this is one of the most significant films I have ever worked on," he says. "There is a mystery about the war in Iraq. Not just how and why it started, but what it is ultimately about. It is a mystery that I am trying to investigate.” Let the investigation begin.
