All Quiet on the Western Front ★★★★

Raw and intense warfare mixed with a group of high school students. It’s as saddening and innocent as it sounds. As one of the earliest talkies and anti-war films, the realistic bombardment is visually impressive and distressing in its sound design. Despite noticeable technical flaws, there’s a handful of masterfully executed scenes. It left me stirred but overall heartbroken.
