Stunning documentary film-making
10 November 2011 | by (Toronto, Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

Don't let the bizarrely low rating on IMDb dissuade you from watching this amazing documentary. One subject of the film compares the men going off to Afghanistan to the characters in 'The Deer Hunter', and it's an apt comparison. There's no torture, no Russian Roulette, but there is the story of a group of friends from a small town in America going off to fight in a war they don't really understand. And like The Deer Hunter, they come back with wounds not necessarily visible on the outside. This film isn't pro-war or anti-war, hell, in a lot of ways it's not even about war. It's about friendship, family and survival. In other words, it's about life. A must see.
