Exploration 7: Restrepo
The thing that struck me most from this film was just how dangerous this area of fighting was. I was terrified for the soldiers the entire time. I was interested in how the mountains affected the fighting as well as how the fighting affected locals. The scene that stayed with me from the film was the scene where one of the soldiers died. The dead soldier's friend learns about his death and us grief stricken and terrified. I think that this scene really illustrated how the soldiers must have felt terrifed every day. I think that this affected me becuase I could feel the soldier's pain. I would reccomend this film to any of my friends who are interested, however, I am from a military family and my aunt is on her second deployment to Iraq so I'm not sure if I would reccomend it to anyone in my family because it would most likely terrify them. I know it terrified me.
