7/10. This skillfully-produced documentary follows the stories of the first American soldiers in Afghanistan after the 2001 invasion. Insightful, intimate and creative, it's a fresh perspective on a frequently-misunderstood topic.
3/10 Jeff Baena's medieval romp is lackluster for the star power it boasts. Quality performances from John C. Reilly, Nick Offerman and Fred Armisen aren't enough to save this irreverent comedy from itself.
