• The Oath

There’s still time to see Restrepo, the electrifying Afghanistan war documentary about a 15-man platoon trying to stay alive in the Korangal Valley as Taliban fighters attack on a daily basis. The movie closes today at Century 12 and CineArts 6 in Evanston, but Pipers Alley is hanging on to it for at least another week. My long review of the movie—and of The Oath, about two lackeys for Osama bin Laden and what happened to them after 9/11—is here.
