News & Interviews for Korengal
Critic Reviews for Korengal
Most fascinating is the seemingly unanimous feeling that while deployment in Korengal was hard and heartbreaking, these veterans would do it all again just to stay together, to remain brothers who mutually understand something no on else will ever know.
Not quite a coda to Sebastian Junger's and Tim Heatherington's...Restrepo - more of a commentary track, or a series of annotations.
In a series of expertly edited interviews conducted with infantrymen on their way home after a year in the Korengal Valley, Junger exposes us to the war's psychological toll.
"Restrepo" felt like the story of how boys become men. "Korengal" feels like the story of how strangers become family.
Those of us who haven't served on active duty can't know what it's like. Taken together, "Restrepo" and "Korengal" brings us about as close to the experience as we can, or would want, to get.
Audience Reviews for Korengal
Korengal is a very well done documentary, and deals with a topic that will be very important to those who understand.
While a bit longer than it needs to be, Korengal offers a fascinating and important perspective on modern soldiers.
Part two of the Restrepo documentary still packs a punch despite consisting of nothing but Restrepo outtakes.
