Given the absolute glut of documentaries produced about the military excursions into Iraq and Afghanistan, it’s surprising that so few have dealt with the experience of coming home. We know plenty about the moral and the political implications of the wars from Standard Operating Procedure and Taxi to the Dark Side: we know significantly less about the process of recovering from that experience, or what its implications for the rest of your life are. Against that background, High Ground feels like a breath of fresh air. Though it isn’t always as well-paced or assured a film as you’d like, its voice is reassuringly apolitical and positive.
