An excellent documentary on mercenaries...

I just finished watching Shadow Company. I think is an excellent examination of the mercenary/soldier of fortune/private security contractor in the modern age (specifically in Iraq, but Africa is mentioned more than once).

It was suprisingly one of the most balanced documentaries I've seen. Both sides of the issue were covered and discussed. It left the viewer to answer whether mercenary companies are a good thing or a bad thing.

I really liked it, and I recommend it to anyone who is interested in the subject.
