All Quiet on the Western Front

All Quiet on the Western Front ★★★★

ALL QUIET ON THE WESTERN FRONT is a visceral look into life on the frontline during WWI. Paul Baumer and several of his friends decide to join the German troupes as young men thinking it will be a walk in the park. It doesn’t take them long to see that their glamourized ideas of war were extremely far from the truth. This film does not shy away from depicting the true, brutal horrors of war.

From a technical standpoint this film is a huge achievement. A couple of the standouts for me are the production design and the score. I felt like I was truly at the battle lines with these soldiers. And the score was mesmerizing at times. There are certain beats from the score that have been swirling around in my head for days now.
