The anguished soldiers who tell their stories in this effectively infuriating doc speak first about their commitment to the U.S. armed forces. Then each describes the rape she (and one he) suffered at the hands of military men — a violation made even more sickening by systematic institutional cover-up. Director Kirby Dick (This Film Is Not Yet Rated) has no use for subtlety: The intense interviews and damning statistics (20 percent of all female personnel have experienced sexual assault) do the work of whipping up outrage. B+
