For one of the most explicitly political filmmakers working today, it's surprising that it's taken Ken Loach so long to directly address the conflict in Iraq. He may have discussed 9/11 in his segment of the portmanteau film "11'09''01," and there are parallels to be found in his more recent work, like "The Wind That Shakes The Barley," but it was surely only a matter of time before Loach tackled one of the great disgraces of our modern age head-on, even while he delivered more crowd pleasing fare like "Looking For Eric."
