After watching Restrepo, To Hell and Back, Dirty Wars, Iraq in Fragments, Gaza Strip (for a different perspective), it's difficult to find the takeaways in Armadillo. Of course, it's unique in that it's a detachment out of Denmark, a country who's participation in Afghanistan I didn't know much at all about. The choices I did appreciate had to do with access to the soldiers before, and after the tour of duty -- they're treatment was closer to a narrative montage, than standard news b-roll. The colorist made a great choice is desaturating the image and throwing up more greens and deeper blacks, as opposed to say an overly hot and brown color spectrum (maybe this is a Danish thing, or a color spectrum in the northern European regions). Other formal plusses was an unobtrusive presence to the soldiers, and of course, the director, Metz, and cinematographer, Skree, risking life and limb to put their audiences in the line of fire.
