Stop Loss

113 min. minutes | Rated R

This sophomore effort from writer/director Kimberly Peirce is clearly motivated by the same empathetic social sensibility that made her 1999 film Boys Don't Cry such a heartwrencher. But where Boys devastatingly humanized the consequences of homophobia, Stop Loss relies on stereotypes and cartoonish oversimplification to critique the US military. It's a frustrating failure, both ideologically and creatively.
