Friday To-See: "Restrepo"

Posted By on Fri, Jun 4, 2010 at 11:29 AM

“RESTREPO”
Dir.: Tim Hetherington, Sebastian Junger, 70 min.

If there's one film about America's ongoing Afghani war that will be shown in classrooms decades from now, it's hard to imagine this Sundance Grand Jury winner not being it. Hetherington and Junger, two prime examples of adventure journalists, dug their boots in for a year with a 15-man platoon in the Korengal Valley, one of the most dangerous areas in the war. Steering away from any political debates or interviews with families or natives in the crossfire, the two documentarians kept their cameras solely focused on the soldiers and their experiences while traversing the dangerous terrain beside them every step of the way. Even more fascinating, the government gave the two an almost limitless access to the soldiers and battles during filming.

"Restrepo" plays at 3:45 p.m. in Riverdale screen #2.
