A documentary that follows two members of The White Helmets: a makeshift force of first responders who risk life and limb to save men, women, and children from the rubble of Bashar Al-Assad’s Syria.
Aside from being beyond important and required as viewing can get, Last Men in Aleppo is a devastatingly powerful, gut-wrencher of a documentary that you will not soon forget, regardless of your familiarity with or investment in the horrors that are being inflicted upon the people of Syria. Forget whatever reservations you have about foreign films, subtitles, or documentaries and watch this one as soon as possible. Just brace yourself is all.
It’s got a cool 100% on Rotten Tomatoes.
