The Tillman Story is a 2010 American documentary film directed by Amir Bar-Lev. The film is about the death of football player turned U.S. Army Ranger Pat Tillman in the war in Afghanistan, the coverup of the true circumstances of his death, and his family's struggle to unearth the truth. It was nominated for the Grand Jury Prize at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival. It was named 2010 Best Documentary by the San Francisco Film Critics Circle, the St. Louis Gateway Film Critics Association, and the Florida Film Critics Circle. The film is narrated by Josh Brolin.

Pat Tillman was a defensive back with the Arizona Cardinals, but decided to walk away from a multimillion-dollar contract to go to Afghanistan in 2002. After Tillman was killed, an investigation showed that he died by friendly fire. Tillman's family says they learned weeks later that the inspiring story the military had publicized was false. The film shows a paper trail — including a leaked top-secret document known as a P4 Memo, sent to the White House by Gen. Stanley A. McChrystal. Bar-Lev follows Pat's mother, Mary (also known as "Dannie"), as she goes through 3,000 pages of redacted documents trying to uncover the facts.

Bar-Lev began work on the documentary in 2007 during the congressional hearings on the incident. He asked the family for their cooperation for seven months until they agreed to participate.

Composer Philip Sheppard's score for the documentary The Tillman Story is necessarily solemn. The film chronicles the life of Pat Tillman, a professional football player who enlisted in the military in the wake of the September 11 terrorist attacks and was sent to Afghanistan, where he was killed by friendly fire. The circumstances of his death were the subject of an alleged cover-up, so this is a complicated story mixing sports, fame, patriotism, tragedy, and deceit. Sheppard addresses these elements with slow-moving orchestral string parts usually supporting single-note keyboard passages. The cues are short, with 32 of them occupying a soundtrack album of 51 minutes. Understandably, the track called "The Wedding" is a bit livelier. "The Afghan" introduces an appropriately Eastern tonality. If there is, throughout, the sense that something is missing, this is a deliberate choice on the part of the composer, who explains that, in order to mirror the censored documents shown onscreen, documents requested by Tillman's survivors in an attempt to discover what really happened to him, the music too "redacts" parts of melodies that were written, but not fully played. This composition-by-omission also has the effect of complementing the overall theme of the film, which is an account of a person who is no longer present.
