Writer, director, and star Luke Moran plays Jack Farmer, an American soldier deployed to Iraq’s Abu Ghraib prison during the United States’ occupation of Iraq. Shot at the old New Mexico State Penitentiary and based on true events, the film is a bare-bones treatment that handles human-rights abuses at the notorious prison too gently, focusing instead on the guilt or innocence of one man. What could have been a searing indictment of military corruption plays more as standard fare, although  it is competently acted and directed. Rated R.  102 minutes. Jean Cocteau Cinema, Santa Fe.
