Lone Survivor

I will always be glad that I found my way into the theater to watch this one, because this is one movie that I will remember for a very long time. There are movies that are entertaining, brilliant and meaningful, and then there are movies like Lone Survivor which retains all of those adjectives and boasts of two more in its ranks- Inspiring and Moving.

It tells the true tale of four Navy SEALs in a mission horribly gone wrong, in a way that leaves you back in the mountains of Afghanistan, even though you get back home. Cinematography and background music are two tools that took this narrative piece to an all together different level, so it is really not surprising to know that this film has got two academy award nominations for Best Sound Editing and Best Sound Mixing. 

More than anything, I definitely needed to watch such a film. Know such a story. Experience such narration. If this is playing at a theater nearest you, don't miss this one.
