Editors Note
Note Filmmakers Sebastian Junger and Tim Hetherington pay a visit to Afghanistan's Korengal Valley to spend a year with the Second Platoon, a besieged squadron who dubbed their stronghold Outpost Restrepo in honor of their fallen comrade PFC Juan Restrepo. An al-Qaeda and Taliban stronghold, Korengal Valley sees some of the fiercest fighting in the War on Terror. At Outpost Restrepo, every shot fired is personal, and every target hit a gift to a fallen friend.
Reviews
Total Film 3 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he sense of bewilderment and futility speaks for itself." 10/01/2010
Uncut 5 stars out of 5 -- "The film cuts between footage shot in the field, and interviews conducted later with the soldiers who survived the deployment. It's all the more potent for having no ideological cart to push." 11/01/2010
New York Times "[A]n impressive, even heroic feat of journalism....There is nothing especially fancy or innovative here, just a blunt, sympathetic, thorough accounting of the daily struggle to stay alive and accomplish something constructive." 06/25/2010
Wall Street Journal "RESTREPO teaches without preaching or taking a position on the wisdom of the Afghanistan war. As you listen to the men, and watch them on their perilous patrols, you learn that they've been forced to make the best of severely limited resources." 06/25/2010
A.V. Club "The combat footage Junger and Hetherington got for RESTREPO is unlike anything ever seen in a documentary; it's raw, relentless, and made all the more unsettling because neither the soldiers nor the audience can see who's doing the shooting." -- Grade: A- 06/24/2010
Sight and Sound "[A] powerful, direct and beautifully crafted documentary....The interviews are frank and moving as the men tell of their experiences of death and suffering..." 11/01/2010
