2004
Directed by Jonathan Demme

Manipulation. Murder. Mind-washing. Denzel Washington plays Marjor Ben Marco, a war veteran, who seems to have lost snippets of his time at war. He discovers that other veterans are having the same “dreams” but the veterans are then found dead after trying to get the officials to listen. He finds Sergeant First Class Raymond Shaw (played by Liev Schreiber) who is a politician after having saved the men in his unit from a battle. We later see that there is corruption in how Shaw becames a VP candidate in the upcoming election. There is a connection to what happened during the war.
