Should have said something earlier: See Restrepo.

I am biased. My ridiculously talented old pal, Maya Mumma, is the associate editor. Look for her at the next Oscars. She will be wearing Brooklyn Industries, or Gucci.

As a film nazi, as a matter of pride I would not recommend this movie simply because she was one of the cutters. Restrepo, however, is the best war film I've ever seen. So you get where I'm coming from, this rounds out the top five:
  • Paths of Glory
  • Hearts and Minds
  • Das Boot
  • Three Kings

Good company.

Montreal, Vancouver, Tulsa, Dallas, Austin (ahem), Sacramento, Palm Springs, Phoenix, Jacksonville and Orlando -- Restrepo's coming your way tomorrow.
