Restrepo

In our latest spotlight on recent documentaries, Derek, Justine and Simon tackle two very different visions of the war in Afgahnistan: first up is Restrepo, which has just been announced as an Academy Award nominee, and which takes a talking-heads approach mixed with raw, handheld footage of soldiers in action; the other movie is a controversial Danish movie by the name of Armadillo, whose imagery is strikingly cinematic, and whose climactic minutes have been a source of debate in many circles. Derek also spoke to director Janus Metz about the process behind the film.
