Episode 13: Restrepo and When Jews Were Funny
John and Keith could not have picked more different films if they had tried. First up, Sebastian Junger’s and Tim Hetherington’s Restrepo about a platoon of U.S. soldiers setting up an outpost in the Korangal Valley in Afghanistan. It’s an unbiased look on their day to day lives in a war zone. And they wrap up with, Alan Zweig’s When Jews Were Funny.
