HBO documentary goes inside a Baghdad emergency room

May 21, 2006|By HAL BOEDEKER | HAL BOEDEKER,ORLANDO SENTINEL

May, the month when the television season ends, is reserved for supposedly important programs. Few, however, can match the power, humanity and true value of Baghdad ER.

This splendid documentary, making its debut tonight on HBO, follows U.S. soldiers injured in the Iraq war and the medical personnel who care for them. Baghdad ER treats the topic with a remarkable mix of respect, intelligence and understatement.
