Powerful showcase of family, unity & legacy
As a film fan, Danger Close quickly absorbed me into a dynamic cinematic experience in which award-winning journalist Alex Quade conceives through her passionate filmmaking style. Her amateur cinematography techniques design an extremely real and visceral setting for this documentary that tells a story of fallen Green Beret soldier Rob Pirelli. Quade goes to great lengths to fulfill the wishes of his family and offers closure of their lost loved one. The film exudes an emotional and authentic perception of Quade's journey in an astute and riveting way. Learning about the life of a young, fallen soldier's heartfelt story of bravery and valor gives the story line depth and clarity of the true heroism behind our military troops. Journalist Alex Quade developed a perfect balance of suspense and authenticity that absorbs you into an uncensored look at both the accomplishments of Rob Pirelli and a glimpse into the real daily lives of our men and women who serve for our country with powerful footage of actual events that happened during war in Iraq. If you're looking for an alluring and engaging film about family, unity and legacy; Danger Close is for you.
