Paul Greengrass’ recent theatrical release, Green Zone, gets bogged down with heavy-handed story about the search for (nonexistent) WMDs in Iraq. Far more satisfying is his 2002 film, Bloody Sunday. It portrays the Irish civil rights protest and massacre at the hands of British paratroopers in 1972 Northern Ireland. The director was just beginning to hone the hand-held documentary-style he used to great effect in the The Bourne Supremacy and The Bourne Ultimatum. In Bloody Sunday that camera never stops moving, capturing the deadly confusion and lost innocence of that tragic day.
