    Thank you. I’ve been very curious about this film. It sounds harrowing!

    • It was an intense experience and I only watched it in 2D (I also believe there’s a 3D verson, but with only one eye that wouldn’t be fun). I think you’ll ‘enjoy’ it if you enjoy well-made documentaries.

    I’d not heard of this movie, but I think “sobering” would be a good term for it, based on your description. I have the utmost respect for anyone who is willing to lay down their life for their country.

    • While I do have respect for those who are willing to lay down their lives, I have no respect whatsoever for their masters, who sit at home in comfort while sending young kids to wage their wars.
      I think you would find this movie interesting, Lynda. I won’t say you would ‘enjoy’ it, as it’s not an uplifting movie experience – yes, ‘sobering’ – but it’s well made and it brings this horrid history to life. Several times I felt chills down my spine.
