  1. Having a hard time with this movie and the interviews. Haven’t seen it, don’t plan to see it. My opinion on the movie is based solely on the trailers, and some may say that after seeing it, I may feel differently. Fine. But I can’t get a grip on a dramatic re-enactment of something that wasn’t heroic or brave, but based on a poor decision. The actors are just that, actors, and can’t even begin to understand what we do. I’m sure the back stories of the families is fine. One of the crew used to work for me, and I was peripherally close to the crew, although I didn’t know them all. I’m still angered by what happened and feel horrible for the families.
    Anyway, struggling…
