Director Nick Broomfield is well known for his reflexive 'first person' style of documentary making, seen in films such as Aileen: Life and Death of a Serial Killer, but in recent years he has branched out into creating hard-hitting, naturalistic dramas. Battle for Haditha, though it changes the names of those involved, is a harrowing account of a real incident that took place in the Iraq War in 2005, in which 24 Iraqi men, women and children were allegedly killed by a small group of US Marines in a revenge attack after a roadside bomb killed one of their number. Bromfield offers a number of perspectives on events, both Iraqi and American, but draws no easy conclusions.
Kathryn Bigelow became the first female Best Director Oscar-winner for this tense action film about mentally pressured bomb squad specialists in Iraq.
