Consider the between-the-lines implications in Rachel Maddow‘s recent interview with Restrepo co-directors Tim Hetherington and Sebastian Junger. Does she not seem to be agreeing with what I said on 6.20, which is that the film “lies through omission about what’s really going on in Afghanistan in the broader, bigger-picture sense”? The doc’s refusal to supply context about a platoon’s experience in Afghanistan’s war-torn Korangal Valley makes it almost value-less, I feel.
