A very gritty portrayal of the harangues of war in Afghanistan, "Restrepo" shows the humanity in soldiers as individuals, being afraid of what's out there, and being lost in an alien world where no one understands your words or your motives. Filmmakers Sebastian Junger and tim Hetherington did not need to showcase the violence, but had a rather Hitchcockian style to deal with the frights and fears of America's War on Terror, letting the sounds shake us and move us, and letting us see the soldiers before and after. A very well-made documentary, though one that has little news and less keenness.
