A Must Watch
26 May 2017 | by costasfsutlSee all my reviews

Watching Danger Close, I would say, is a necessity for anyone interested in the documentary genre. Danger Close is unlike any documentary that I've ever seen in how it is able to capture a soberingly and characteristically unconventional portrayal of war. While most documentaries on the subject of war attempt to capture bloodshed, horror, or grotesque imagery in attempts to seduce an unwitting audience into theaters or unapologetically voice personal political opinions; Danger Close does neither. Danger Close strays away from images of bloodshed to present images of brotherhood. This documentary is undoubtedly one of the few based on the soldiers themselves rather than the fight the soldiers are in. This film gives an inside look at what the real lives of soldiers are like as well as the unfortunate real consequences of war on families and soldiers alike. Danger Close's film style is also extremely influential in how it presents itself to its audience. This film follows award-winning war reporter, Alex Quade, as she travels through Iraq, experiencing life among special forces unit soldiers and follows the aftermath of a family, The Pirelli's, after their son Staff Sgt. Robert Pirelli is killed in action in Iraq. I'd recommend Danger Close to anyone hoping to get a glimpse at what war is really like in the real world rather than what war is like on a television screen.
