When Pat Tillman died in Afghanistan in 2004, it made news. Turned out the former NFL star, hailed a military hero, had died by friendly fire. This engrossing doc -- a Sundance hit -- peels back layers of spin to reveal what really happened to Tillman and how his family fought to learn the truth. (Sony Pictures, $25)
