All Quiet on the Western Front

All Quiet on the Western Front ★★★★

We still struggle to depict the true scale of these wars, but the horror and futility is amazingly well captured. The combat sequences were exceptional, almost taking inspiration from video games, in having cameras over the shoulder, seeing people fire and enemy’s hit in the same shot. It really makes it feel real, in a way that heavily cut sequences don’t always. The colour grading and composition was also exceptional, and all performances seemed great.
