  • It's sort of an eye-opener just to see something this unbiased and un-manipulative.

  • This remarkable film comes across as war's backstage story-it's about the stuff they leave out of the official coverage.

    March 21, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Depicts the war beneath the narratives, capturing the soldier's experience with an immediacy that explodes political abstraction, placing it in a more humanist context.

  • Leaning in to the style its patchwork of source material requires, "Combat Obscura" is an eye-opening dispatch from a conflict mired in confusion.

  • A warts-and-all look at in-the-trenches behavior and misbehavior.

    March 14, 2019 | Full Review…
  • It may not offer much more than a hellish, on-the-ground vision of the war in Afghanistan, but perhaps it's enough that Lagoze detonates any lingering illusions of military heroism.

  • [in this] jangled, jarring Afghan War documentary, a Marine Corps cameraman shows the flippant cynicism of combat in ways the military would rather we not think about.

    April 2, 2019 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…
  • It shows that war is never, ever kind. There is no victory in most victories, and defeat is always near. Yet, the film finds the time to show how humanity can bloom on the battlefield, or maybe it was always there and we've just never had it shown to us.
