Morris Premieres New Doc, Patiently Answers B.O.-Related Questions

Defamer caught up with the great documentarian Errol Morris at a screening of his upcoming Abu Graihb film, " "Standing Operating Procedure." If the film is as engaging as Morris makes it sound, I don't really think it matters whether the film takes in more money than other recent Iraq-themed flops.

"It's not a movie about torture or about whether the Iraq War shouldn't have been fought. I have strong opinions about that myself. But I made a movie about people like yourself or myself trapped in the middle of this — people we never would have seen or would have forgotten about, who we just would have assumed are really monsters. And I've brought them back across the line back into humanity. And I think it's an interesting story — and a human story."
