All Quiet on the Western Front

All Quiet on the Western Front ★★★½

“We’ll all die at some point.”

Stunningly beautiful cinematography and stark portrayal of WWI. The score is modern and oftentimes jarring. 

When the war is over, the movie doesn’t end there. There’s really no excuse for a film to be about two and a half hours long. However, the movie is effective and executed very well. A character says, “15 minutes to go” when the movie’s over in about 15 minutes. 

Practically all the horrors of war are shown. I’d be surprised if anyone was still pro-war after watching this.
