Hell and Back Again 4.0 stars

Hell and Back Again movie poster

Danfung Dennis’s startling documentary follows U.S. Marine Sgt. Nathan Harris through his recovery after being shot in the hip while serving his third tour in Afghanistan. We are privy to the actual footage from the battlefield leading up to Harris’s injury. The camera is remarkably steady, given the roughness of the terrain and the jeopardy of the mission. Harris is an intriguing subject -- a soldier with deep conviction and unique demons. A disturbing kind of irony emerges as the “home” scenes become more unnerving than the battle sequences. 2011.
