The Synopsis for In the Valley of Elah (2007) 1080p

In Monroe, Tennessee, Hank Deerfield, an aging warrior, gets a call that his son, just back from 18 months' fighting in Iraq, is missing from his base. Hank drives to Fort Rudd, New Mexico, to search. Within a day, the charred and dismembered body of his son is found on the outskirts of town. Deerfield pushes himself into the investigation, marked by jurisdictional antagonism between the Army and local police. Working mostly with a new detective, Emily Sanders, Hank seems to close in on what happened. Major smuggling? A drug deal gone awry? Credit card slips, some photographs, and video clips from Iraq may hold the key. If Hank gets to the truth, what will it tell him?

The Reviews for In the Valley of Elah (2007) 1080p

Reviewed byMovie-JayVote: 10/10/10

This movie is just about perfect. I love how it starts as a genre movieand then transcends into something deeper and soul-searching. Somepeople just don't like Paul Haggis, but I'm not one of them. I thinkhe's very smart here; he has no political point of view, he handlesCharlize Theron perfectly, and the movie forces everybody to thinkabout the troops in a way that isn't simply political rhetoric. I lovethat Tommy Lee Jones feels the way so many dads do. He's never beenbetter. Watching the police work happen is interesting on it's own, butI like that Charlize Theron is just out to do the job correctly andjust shrugs off the chauvinism coming at her from her department. Themovie could've gone somewhere with that, but instead just quietly letsus in on it and moves on.

There have been many very good movies the last few years aboutIraq-related themes, but I don't think there is a film that capturesthe feeling of the national mood as good as this one. It's drained ofmelodrama and just sort of moves forward on really good performances ofthe whole cast, who all act according to their natures instead ofbecause of stupid plot requirements.

I just saw this film and consider it to be one of the best anti-war films I've seen in quite a long time. And that makes me wonder at what the various critics are thinking. Roger Ebert gets it right, but some film critics are far too dismissive of a very serious, important film. James Berardinelli, in particular, seems curiously _angry_ that this film depicts the moral degradation of war in a frank and honest fashion.

Berardinelli is basically wrong in every single thing he says about the film. Since this film is not a "politcal message" film, it has no requirement to "show both sides equally". It is a story about a group of soldiers basically driven beyond the area of traditionally human behavior. Berardinelli thinks that it's "obvious" that war changes the way people feel about their country.

I sense a person utterly detached from history when I read that. A recent study concluded that the English were, as a group, fairly happy during WWII, even when their nation was under attack. Why was that? Because they believed in what they were doing. The notion that war _necessarily_ results in moral breakdown is, while hardly novel, also not true. That is part of what is important about "Elah". Jones' character is a veteran of the Vietnam war, and is hardly a delicate flower when it comes to the matters of war and its effect on the psyche. And yet even he is floored at what the Iraq war has done to the soldiers.

It is easy for a film critic to simply reject what is essentially reporting on the state of the military today. That Berardinelli does so with such vitriol makes me guess that he is injecting his own bias into the review.

A brave statement on the psychological cost of warReviewed byruhi-yamanVote: 7/10

One has to be on the payroll of Dick Cheney to claim that Iraq war is anything other than an absolute failure. Let us have no illusions: Iraq in particular and Middle East in general are in a worse shape than it was under the regime of Saddam and this is saying a lot. More than one million Iraqis are dead and hundreds of thousands, most of them are children, carry the physical and emotional scars of the biggest mess of botched-up American foreign policy since the Vietnam War. And there is no end in sight. The misadventure fulfilled its own prophecy. Now, it is truly dangerous for Iraq for Americans to leave Iraq.

What about the cost of this mess for America itself ? that is other than the immense economic cost? What is it doing to thousands of American youth that are returning or will return with all the residue of the paranoia and anxiety instilled in them through fighting a cruel and invisible enemy in the name of a population that is mostly hostile to them? In the Valley of Elah is an early and brave examination of the psychological effects of war on the returned soldiers and their families. Ostensibly a mystery, it follows the investigation of a rigid Vietnam veteran (the incomparable Tommy Lee Jones) with the help of a marginalized female detective (Charlize Theron, determined as ever to prove that she is a serious actor). It doesn't work as well as it should as a murder mystery, because Haggis is determined to avoid the clichés of the genre, although he still cannot help giving his female lead a cute Hollywood son and a past affair with her current boss. There are other disappointments: Susan Sarandon, perfectly in her element as the dignified mother; Josh Brolin, as the remorseful ex-boyfriend and current boss of Theron character; and Frances Fisher, as a topless bartender in a strip club give better performances than their brief screen time allows them. Also, Haggis is uncertain as to how much he can trust his audience's intelligence. Most scenes lack subtlety.

However, as a political statement, the film is perhaps the most honest examination of its subject to date. Haggis managed to infuse a tightly controlled anger underlined by Jones' impeccable performance. The denouement and particularly the final scene is very brave on more than one level. It is unfortunate that American public is still not ready to face the ugly but inescapable truth about the gross indecency of the betrayal of its leaders. I don't expect the film to achieve the box office that it deserves.
