Great movie, sad news about the director. He gave a great Q&A after the movie when I saw it, he conveyed a lot of emotion about war journalism and the struggles of the soldiers at the outpost.

It is a totally unbiased movie towards the soldiers in Iraq. When watching the film, I felt as if i was there in the base clowning around and the next minute dropping to the ground to avoid an enemies bullet. Tears and laughter accompany this telling doc.
Gritty, real look at war--follows a group of soldiers in Afghanistan and covers not only life in conflict but also the life in between on the base. Great views of interactions between soliders and locals--highlighting the difficulties of a war with an enemy that is not easy to identify.
Nominated for an acadamy award for a reason, this movie shows you what war is really like. Here you see that the everyday life of soldiers, isn't everyday at all. Coping with a constantly changing and hostile environment, we follow the lives of a handful of soldiers as they fight for their country.
War is hell. This documentary will hopefully make all appreciate the sacrifices that are being made. It doesn’t ask the questions “Why are we here?” “Why are we fighting this war?” “What is the point?” It doesn’t need to. You can see the reason in the eyes of every military man interviewed.
