The Kill Team

A work of acute psychological journalism, Dan Krauss's The Kill Team outlines an event that caused a dishearteningly brief furor in the domestic media: the supposedly isolated story of a rogue platoon of American infantrymen who repeatedly killed Afghan civilians for sport. The documentary opts to sideline the broader consequences of these incidentsmost obviously, another set of reasons for the people of Afghanistan to distrust the presence and intentions of American troops; more quietly, an American public whose sense of outrage has been exhausted by other, similar revelationsin order to draw a largely focused portrait of war's power to dissolve a soldier's sense of moral absolutism.
