Such a sad thing to read. Restrepo is a great film.

He was doing what he loved, reporting on the ground by showing on picture what was going on there. Deepest condolences to his family.

Such a sad thing to read. Restrepo was indeed awesome and I have a feeling that this guy was going to make a lot more great doc's. Sucks that we won't be able to see them :(

I actually know someone that fought and was injured so very badly and lost an eye last year in that "valley of death" as they call it in Afghanistan where they filmed Restrepo. My heart and prayers go out to their families.
