The war in Iraq stalled the release of this stinging satire of peacetime soldiers with nothing to kill but time. Joaquin Phoenix makes a charming rat as Ray Elwood, a supply clerk stationed in Germany in 1989. Ray runs a black market, selling TVs, heroin, even weapons. When a new top sarge (Scott Glenn) cleans up Ray's act, Ray retaliates. Screwing the top's daughter (a smart, sexy Anna Paquin) is just for starters. Adapting Robert O'Connor's novel, director Gregor Jordan slaps us with keen wit and purpose.
