"High Ground" is a moving documentary that is both the film it presents itself to be and something more.

Brown ... translates a collage of experiences - some desperate, some hopeful, all tragic - into a first-person commentary on the malign reverberations of war.

Brown takes advantage of the opportunity to present a broad array of feelings, less on the nature of these conflicts in particular and more on the mindset of the soldier in war - and the difficulties faced when no longer in the midst of the conflict.

A less than inspiring documentary about extremely inspiring individuals, "High Ground" is worth seeing for what it shows rather than how it shows it.

PTSD documentary provides a poignant portrait of wounded Irag and Afghan War vets as they scale Himalayan mountain.

Backed by the astounding beauty of the Himalayas, their struggle to reach the peak is healing for them and illuminating for the rest of us.
