Lone Survivor (2013)
One hell of a movie. Emotionally tormenting to say the least. I’m glad they decided to make this film as close as possible to the actual story without “hollywoodizing” it to the nth degree. It’s not 100% accurate (what movie ever is?) and it doesn’t have every little detail from the actual event shown, but that’s fine, because the point is made very clear.
This film was an extremely visceral experience, deeply moving from start to finish for me. That’s hard to say about a lot of films these days. On the surface its a war movie. But deep down it makes you question your faith in humanity and the good of others regardless of where they come from.
