ARMADILLO (Janus Metz Pedersen, 2010)

***½
Denmark
In film festivals across the West the staple that used to be the incensed Iraq doc has mutated into the incensed Afghanistan doc. It's difficult to argue that there is something to glean from this one that you couldn't from the dozens that preceded it. But it is well-crafted, immersive, chilling. And it charts the dehumanising effect of war acutely and in detail.
