All Quiet on the Western Front

All Quiet on the Western Front ★★★½

A bleak depiction of the hideousness of war. I love how the story progresses from the innocence of youth of wanting to join the war, to the dark reality of its horror. Technically flawless and tonally harrowing, the director, Edward Berger masterfully crafted a riveting and emotionally-resonating story that never felt too torture-porn-ish. Nevertheless, the film slightly overstayed its welcome with that lengthy runtime but overall, this is probably the best anti-war film since 1917 (2019), so I can't recommend this enough!!
