Restrepo
(DVD)

DIRECTED BY - Sebastian Junger, Tim Hetherington


Filmmakers Sebastian Junger and Tim Hetherington pay a visit to Afghanistan's Korengal Valley to spend a year with the Second Platoon, a besieged squadron who dubbed their stronghold Outpost Restrepo in honor of their fallen comrade PFC Juan Restrepo. An al-Qaeda and Taliban stronghold, Korengal Valley sees some of the fiercest fighting in the War on Terror. At Outpost Restrepo, every shot fired is personal, and every target hit a gift to a fallen friend.

Press

3 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he sense of bewilderment and futility speaks for itself."

- Philip Kemp, Total Film

5 stars out of 5 -- "The film cuts between footage shot in the field, and interviews conducted later with the soldiers who survived the deployment. It's all the more potent for having no ideological cart to push."

- Andrew Mueller, Uncut
