Restrepo - Super Short Review

Restrepo - Outpost Films

Chilling documentary. Gets you closer than any war film I've seen. Good coverage of fighting, but emphasis on the relationships and bonding of the men of the platoon. Combat and downtime footage interspersed with meaningful interviews of the men. Causes you to reflect and be thankful. Eventual Best Documentary nominee, and possible winner. Very deserving.

Grade: B+
