The story of Easy Company is one I'll never forget.
I believe that film can never really fully encapsulate what these soliders- on both sides - civillians, and families really struggled through, during this time of devastation, brutality, and hardship. War wasn't recorded like a film. Things are bound to be exaggerated, and others undervalued. But it can sure do…
"Whoever saves one life, saves the world entire."
Truly one of the most powerful films ever created. Beautifully crafted in every way. Left me shocked. An unlikely hero offering hope in a time of devestation and brutality. A haunting depiction of the horror and atrocities committed against the Jews in Europe.
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
Jonathan Glazer’s The Zone of Interest is an incredibly depressing and unsettling film, so much so that I’d go as far as calling it horror. And it fascinating, You don’t even see any of the atrocities taking place. All we have to go on is smoke and flames in the distance, faint screams and gunshots all the while the Höss family are living their ideal life mere steps from the camp. It’s terrifying, they lead a normal and ordinary life…
Oh my oh my. What an absolute journey this was. The fact that this is on Letterboxd saddens me. I NEED another season.
Richard Madden puts on the greatest acting of his life in this 6 episode, tension filled rollercoaster of a series. The first twenty minutes of EP. 1 ALONE are clearly an indication of that. An incredible way to kick of the series, and the intensity did not stop there. It continued the rest of way through.
