    Southern Comfort


    A film more important than good.

    Trans men are sorely under-represented in all media, as well as in the larger social conversation regarding trans people, so it's great to see a documentary with a specific focus on trans men.

    It's also nice that this mostly just gets out of the way and lets those guys speak for themselves about the issues they face and their perspective on gender and the societal view thereof.

    I don't think this is necessarily an outright bad film, but what the fuck is the point here?

    Is the point that war is hell? If so, this is obvious to everyone already. Films like Saving Private Ryan (1998) or We Were Soldiers (2002) depict the visual atrocity and gut-wrenching fear, pain, and confusion of soldiers much more viscerally and accurately. This is a bleached, PG-13 affair that seems content to shy away from the blood, the burning corpses, and the horrifically and…
