Review: Retrograde (2022)

A documentary about the United States’ withdrawal from Afghanistan after nearly 20 years. It’s heart-breaking. I have a Special Forces pal, who was over there in the earliest stages. I thought of him often. I can’t repeat his stories, of course, but they were 100% more intelligent than the dispatches coming from the media or the Washington press conferences. Anyway. Nothing about this story is good but I thought this was a beautifully done documentary. I reviewed for Ebert.
