Subtitles in French and Spanish
"Filmed almost entirely inside the Pathway Home in California, a residential therapy center for veterans, this devastatingly raw documentary shows that for some the fighting may stop, but the suffering continues." - Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times
"Disregard your personal feelings about the military, U.S. involvement in foreign wars, or a French director making a movie about Americans. This film is raw in the truest sense, yet refined in its sympathy and scope." - Diana Clark, Village Voice
"The horrors of the battlefield come home to roost in ways that are both riveting and deeply disturbing in Of Men and War, a remarkable chronicle of Iraq War veterans suffering from the devastating effects of PTSD." - Jordan Mintzer, Hollywood Reporter
"A work of astounding sensitivity and precision, it argues for emotional honesty as a moral and psychic imperative." - Christopher Grey, Slant Magazine
Of Men and War refuses to mask or simplify the harsh realities of PTSD. This stubbornness, an insistence that the roughness of war be taken seriously, makes the film an essential document of 21st century American conflict." - Daniel Walber, Nonfics
