Film #293: RESTREPO
3.5 out of 5 stars
A fascinating documentary on a squad of soldiers during their tour in one of the most dangerous area of Afghanistan. Few punches are pulled as two embedded journalists roll video footage on the trials and tribulations they face on a day-to-day basis. Not only does the heat of battle get documented, but also the frustration inherent to trying to won the hearts and minds of people who a) have no common language with you and b) are threatened on a daily basis by the enemy. The film is an amazing document and one no American should miss.
