Trailer: Armadillo

By now I'm sure most of you are sick or Afghanistan war related documentaries (seen clearly in Restrepo losing out on an Oscar award it rightfully deserved). However, I hope you keep an open mind about Janus Metz Pedersen's Armadillo.

The Danish filmmaker followed a platoon of soldiers from his country for a year, and used the footage to create a (what seems to be) impressive visual display of the soldiers' lives. If you need more convincing, think Restrepo meets Gasland with a hint of Errol Morris.

And if you need even more convincing, head to the to see catch the trailer for the film. It might be a bit 'art house' for some audiences, but this still looks too good to pass up. A limited release is set for later this month so keep an eye out for it at your local theaters.
