Posted on 14th November 2009 in Uncategorized

As the film aired over Veteran’s Day across the nation, we have compiled several reviews below.

Thanks to everyone who’s seen the film and is talking about it!

“Nancy Schiesari’s documentary centers on the military ritual of getting inked, interweaving the personal stories of six central characters—and their relationships to the war in Iraq—with the visual expressions of their tattoos .”

“This idea of an uncertain future affects most of the soldiers here, whether looking back on their recent service or forward to a first or next tour. Their efforts to gain control take various forms.”
“By following both returning and deployment-bound young soldiers and the stories told on their bodies, [the film]  gets under their skin.”
