Is that the reality of the American Dream?

I don't think that this movie can be the best advertisement to push "alien" citizens to enlist US Army troops in order to obtain the American citizenship. The story of a young Mexican, recently deported from LA to his homeland - Mexico -, who decides to come back to the USA, illegally of course, just to obtain the citizenship by enlisting the US Army and serve in Afghanistan. So, in the first time he decides to find his brother who lives in LA, more precisely in Beverly Hills, him, a Chicano...Believe it or not, a simple poor born Chicano living in a superb millions worth villa in Beverly Hills. But it appears that our lead's bro is simply a simple man of all work, the mechanic henchman of a Mexican billionaire, supposed to be a major "musician" drug baron. It is never specified, just "suggested". That's when the feature stops to be a social film to become a war feature. The young Mexican enlists the Army with a phony ID that his bro has given him and finds himself a couple of months later in the middle of the Afghan desert... I won't tell you more, but you can guess that movie is not very comfortable to watch. It is a brutal, violent criticism of the American politics towards foreigners asking to fight for the USA in order to obtain the Green Card. Maybe Ken Loach would have made a better film, more deeply described, more accurate, maybe, but this film remains powerful and depressing too. A real must see.
