The latest in a long line of American movies about the experience of US soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan is American Sniper, directed by Clint Eastwood.

Great trailer. But the focus on the lives of soldiers is pretty safe territory for Hollywood. It would be great to see a feature on the decision-making in Washington after 9/11. Oliver Stone's George W Bush biopic W is about the nearest thing I can think of in that genre.
