Critic Reviews for High Ground
Moving account of 11 disabled veterans on an expedition to climb Mount Lobuche in the Himalayas.
"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.
