*The Dry Land drops some PTSD knowledge

*Soul Boy is a lot of fun

*Restrepo is mildly depressing.

Since the horrible trio of films I watched on Tuesday, I had been on a streak of bad or mediocre films.  Which is why yesterday’s screenings were a major win in this festival conflict.  I would recommend all three of films listed above, though for different reasons and moods.  It was pure happenstance that I ended up watching a documentary about U.S. military in Afghanistan (Restrepo) and the effects of PTSD (The Dry Land).  Soul Boy broke up what would have otherwise been a super depressing day of screenings.
