What I find most fascinating about this DVD versus most other DVD releases (fiction and documentary) is that you really need to look at the total package or contents in seeing and understanding what has been achieved and the story that is being told, rather than just the main film.

I have seen most of Errol Morris's prior documentaries so to an extent this latest (especially after "Fog of War" containing his interviews with Robert McNamara) and many of the features on show here (use of music, re-enactment of events by actors, occasional interjections off camera during interviews by Morris, and the overall structure, look and feel) do not surprise me as much as they have some other reviewers. Morris has always been stylistically different to many other documentary film makers and all these features are key parts of his cinematic style.

The main film is clearly the key part which at nearly 2 hours is an examination of the well known photos that were taken by military personnel involved in the events depicted in one section of the large prison at Abu Ghraib and used in the subsequent prosecution of them and their colleagues. Interviews with several of these persons and the showing of many of the photos comprise the greater part of the film.

Having watched this DVD tonight I feel compelled to reply to the previous 2 comments. They nearly put me off watching it, however I'm glad I watched it for the following reasons

1. It was a useful reminder of the horrors of Abu Graib and a good summation of that sick little episode.
2. It is a damn good story though wouldn't it be better if it were fiction.
3. It will stand as a historical record (open to interpretation of course)
4. It is undeniably facinating to see and hear the perpetrators discuss the events.
5. The conclusions that the little guys were prosecuted while the really serious crimes, murder, torture etc were never dealt with.

What I didn't like about the film were stylistic elements- use of re-enactments and music trying to make it more "cinematic". It didn't need any of this and in fact it detracted from the gripping narrative and the talking heads and the pictures. No additional elements were required. Looking into the eyes of the ex military personell involved was drama enough.
So not perfect but a valuable document.

I found it a very good documentary, giving insight into the American military culture. Astonishing that the people who gave the orders were never charged or convicted. Only the men and women of the lowest ranks got made scapegoats.

There are some funny moments as well, the "softening up" of prisoners by playing continues loud music. They (prisoners)were able to handle basically all kinds of music except Country & Western music.

Also interviews with "consultants" hired to do interogations. Brave of the people who helped making this documentary and scary to see how the Americans operate with their commanding officers & Bush administrators washing their hands in innocence.

This along with taxi to the dark side are a great explanation why we should have rules of war the Geneva convention and human rights, and stick to them. I know the British have done many shameful (and worse) things like this in the past. It is interesting to note that the people who did these acts do not on the whole recognise that they have done great wrong to innocent people in whose countries they were aggressive invaders and occupiers. Torture is stupid because it does not work, the victim tells you any old nonsense they think you want to hear in order to stop the pain. Then acting on the duff information gets you in more trouble.

"Standard Operating Procedure" follows the plight of what happened to some of the former soldiers from the Abu Gharaib Prison scandal. There is an implication that more highly trained and higher ranking officials were involved than just the men and women featured in the documentary. Charles Graner was one of the men who was involved, but not shown in the documentary. However, his wife Megan Graner recalls what happened. In my humble opinion, it was tragic all around in regards to both the scandal and what happened to the soldiers. However, I would have to say that Lynndie England really got the shaft in more ways than one. England is honest enough to admit that Graner influenced her to pose in those photos and that she did it for love. However, at the time of that interview, he still had little to do with their son. Additionally, she was still seeking employment years after the incident ( as per an NBC news article on her from March 19 2013). I actually hope that things get better for Lynndie England because she served her time for the incidents and her son's life also hangs in the balance. There is much more sensitive information than what I just mentioned and "Standard Operating Procedure" is good to watch for those who believe that there are always at least two sides to every story.
