Diary (2010) by Tim Hetherington. Arresting.
I have always wanted to give a voice to my subjects. That’s really important for me. It’s their reality, and I’m mediating it for the public. And I understand that.
Restrepo. This is as depressing as you’d expect. It’s also some ballsy filming, tastefully done. I’m really glad the film kept its focus on the on-the-ground experience without straying into speechy political analyst territory. People who weren’t there don’t get to talk.
Restrepo — A Film by Sebastian Junger & Tim Hetherington. Good-looking documentary. I hadn’t heard of this one. Ebert says ★★★★.
