8.5.2015 Restrepo

I’m not even sure this was the goal, but for me it just made the whole thing seem so stupid. These people were put at risk to defend a valley so that we could a road that never seemed to be built and that none of the locals seemed to actually care about. As a film it is pretty good. It sacrifices some control for a sense of immediacy that is probably the right situation, but at times feels uninspired. Really the men carry the film and the film does a pretty good job of allowing them to.
