.....What will be the reaction to Baghdad ER?

"HBO has been promoting the documentary as a tribute to the heroism of the soldiers and medical personnel who are shown working under severe stress. But the producers acknowledge that its harrowing scenes could be interpreted differently."

HBO's Sheila Nevins says this much:

"Anything showing the grim realities of war is, in a sense, antiwar. In that way, the film is a sort of Rorschach test. You see in it what you bring to it."
