From degradation and war in Iraq to sex in France, Robinson Film Center covers the indie scene

Robinson Film Center rises to its full possibilities this week. Its movie offerings take us a from serious social issues to frothy Euro comedy.

"Standard Operating Procedure" is a new documentary rated R for disturbing images and content involving torture and graphic nudity, and for language. It is an examination of the unintended consequences of the Iraqi war with a focus on events at Abu Ghraib prison which began to appear in global media in 2004.

Ultimately, it is the story of soldiers who believed they were defending democracy but found themselves plunged into an unimagined nightmare.

"Priceless" is a French comedy with English subtitles. It is rated PG-13 for sexual content, including nudity.
