All Quiet on the Western Front

All Quiet on the Western Front ★★★½

Don’t usually love war films but got really invested in this. Terrifying as you’d expect, but also so emotional. Even in happy scenes there’s this underlying layer of sadness to it. The sound is out of this fucking world. I don’t know how that was even accomplished. I think Berger’s direction could’ve been more creative at times but it’s mostly very strong with the cinematography being stunning. Felix Kammerer really impressed in the latter half. 

And to my mom: I will not be joining the army, don’t worry.
