Infected pockets of bile result from gunshot wounds

by Critical Commons Manager

In this montage of scenes from Three Kings, a special forces officer (George Clooney) in the last days of the Iraq war instructs junior soldiers on the realities of gunshot wounds to the human body, followed by a scene in which shootings and their consequences actually take place. In Three Kings, slow motion is used to accentuate the horror of gun violence rather than to create an operatic spectacle and celebration, as is the Hollywood convention.
