The Prisoner Now on DVD

The Prisoner is now available on DVD from Magnolia Home Video and on Netflix.

My Prisoner. My Brother.

Vanity Fair has published a piece by Michael Tucker that
tells the story behind The Prisoner.

My Prisoner, My Brother

An American soldier formed an unlikely friendship in the crucible of Abu Ghraib--with an Iraqi detainee who was under his command. Their gripping story is the subject of a new documentary, The Prisoner or: How I Planned to Kill Tony Blair.

Mr. Tucker
I am looking for you....
Last week I [read about an Iraqi prisoner named] Yunis being captured [by U.S. troops] in [your movie] Gunner Palace. I ... rented it and saw that it was the Yunis I know.... I served at Abu Ghraib from February 2004 [to] February 2005 at Camp Ganci, the enclosure where Yunis was my detainee.... I've been typing his name into google since I [returned to America from] Iraq.... I was very close with Yunis [and his brothers], Khalid [and] Abbas.... Obviously you can never tell for certain in such a crazy environment what is really going on, but I felt that these people were my good friends and that we survived that hell together with support from one another. I truly love these people....
Benjamin Thompson
