All Quiet on the Western Front

All Quiet on the Western Front ★★★★★

"All Quiet on the Western Front" is an absolutely spectacular war film that left me speechless. This is honestly the most realistic and brutal depiction of war I've seen in years and I cannot commend the direction enough. On a technical level it's perfect. The sound design, cinematography, the score, the lighting of the camera. Shame on Netflix for not putting this in theaters nationwide because this would have been an immersive experience that would have been unforgettable. I was also impressed with how different of an adaptation this was from the 1930 Best Picture winner. I liked that this was made by a German filmmaker and that it was in German with English subtitles. For this type of story it makes sense and I was riveted throughout. Great acting and truly one of the best anti-war films I've ever seen. Not an easy watch, but I can't recommend it enough. At a loss for words, it's something you genuinely have to see for yourself!
