Each Friday, we post a selection of viewer comments relating to the week’s film.
This week, viewers watched Armadillo, the Danish war documentary that sparked controversy about the Afghanistan war in its home country.
“I thought Restrepo was a fantastic glimpse into a soldier’s life in Afghanistan, but this really hit home. Thank you to the soldiers and to Mr. Metz for allowing us this glimpse (a very candid glimpse) into their lives there.”
“Compelling presentation of the good, bad, and the ugly of this war. As an American, this opened up a new yet painfully familiar perspective on our global tragedy.”
— Kevin Farkas (via Facebook)
“By far the most captivating documentary about modern warfare”
“One of the most powerful verite docs about war Ive ever seen.”
— Bob Sacha (Twitter @bobsacha)
“They are soldiers not NGOs in a country that is very hostile to them. They have lost some of their own. What would you do?”
