Hell And Back Again (2011)

Directed by: Danfung Dennis
Country: USA

Plot: What does it mean to lead men in war? What does it mean to come home? This documentary has the answers.
Quick comment: The hell goes on for Sergeant Harris after being shot in Afghanistan War where he was leading his platoon on a mission. Seriously wounded in a leg, he was forced to return to US and has become a drug addict  in order to avoid the extreme chronic pain. Using intercalated images of war and post-war time, it revealed to be more depressing than informative by only showing another singular case of a man with particular taste for killing and whose life was wrecked by war.
Relevant Awards: best documentary (Moscow); jury prize (Sundance).
