Lone Survivor is a classic platoon flick

27 January 2014 7:30 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Peter Berg's depiction of a botched Afghan war mission has upset critics left and right. But whatever its politics, there's no denying its impact

Boy, has the surprise-hit war movie Lone Survivor got 'em up in arms. On the left and on the right, it's the political football of the week. Salon's Andrew O'Hehir (I'm a fan) called it "a jingoistic, pornographic piece of war propaganda", while Amy Nicholson of La Weekly called it "a jingoistic snuff film". I found their remarks a little ripe, if mostly well argued, although Nicholson's characterisation of the characters' default mindset as "Brown people bad, American people good" rather misses the obvious retort: "They wanna kill me, I wanna live." But I felt a little differently after roly-poly multimillionaire Glenn Beck (and which branch of the military did he serve in?) started tearing strips off Nicholson in an egregiously bumptious and sexist fashion. »
