Restrepo - A Documentary by Sebastian Junger and Tim Hetherington


I saw this one during the weekend and definitively is one of the best documentaries about the war in Afghanistan. The firefight scenes are almost surreal. Highly recommended movie.



Cheers,

I just saw this film a few weeks ago. I'm really glad that most of the guys made it out of there. The true test will be how their non-visible scars heal in the coming years.

I've been overseas twice now, and I cant say that I've ever been as deep as these guys were.

The video reminded me of a few things. Specifically, that you should enjoy life and the things you have in it....family, food, running water, nobody shooting at you on a daily basis.

Kudos to that commander, who throughout the video, stayed vigilant even when he had KIA and WIA on his hands.
