I am stuck on Planet Restrepo and I can’t get off. I didn’t sit on the side of that mountain and get pounded by gunman that wanted to shoot at Americans but I am somehow inextricably tied into this film and no matter how much I yell ‘stop the bus I want to get off’ I keep getting pulled back in.
So after running around like a nutter doing Halloween type shenanigans and filling my kids full of sugar, I then had the privilege of chewing the fat with the utterly gorgeous Brendan O’Byrne, the poster boy from Restrepo and one of the US intrepid serviceman that stood on a mountain for his country and defended his position against any enemy that fancied shooting at some Americans.
Each interview has a something to offer so I think you should take the time to listen. I do seem to have a little bit of interview tourettes – sorry! Me and my potty mouth!
One last time…tomorrow….see RESTREPO @ the Farnham Maltings, Farnham, Surrey, 7pm, buy your £6 tickets on the door.
It’s really hard pre-hype to explain how significant this film is when it’s full significance has yet to be realised. But trust me, it’s important. It is significant. Take this once in a lifetime opportunity, get off your f*cking, lazy arse and get to this screening and watch this goddamn film.
You know I can’t even get off the bus yet after the screening because the Great Lord Junger, writing Diety, and all round legend, has agreed to an interview with me after the 7th November. This is what I mean. Just when you think it’s all over, then the Universe dangles this big juicy carrot in front of me, and I have to let the path run it’s course. I can hardly turn down the opportunity to chat with Sebastian Junger now can I? Would you?
