Tillman Story, The


USA 2010, 90 minutes
Dir. Amir Bar-Lev
Rating: [M] Offensive language
Genres: Documentary / War


Aroview: Complex portrait of NFL defensive lineman Pat Tillman, who attracted both admiration and controversy by abandoning a professional football career to serve in Iraq, only to be killed in the line of duty under misleading circumstances.

Blood-boiling as Iraq war indictments should be, this also expertly delves into the multiple shades of grey revealed in the aftermath of Tillman's passing, both around the so-called 'heroic' nature of his death, and his own motives and feelings towards the unpopular war, as expressed through his equally fascinating family members.
