All Quiet on the Western Front

All Quiet on the Western Front

War has a unique place in this moment of history because the people who are best at it insist they hate it all the while never missing a chance to doll it the fuck up with pretty cinematography and tugging heart strings with cute actors to make money. (The surest way you know which side is going to get their ass kicked in a war film is to note which side admits they love war.)

This is this year's entry in the band of bros go off to kill and be killed and it's horrible genre. No doubt this is the most harrowing version of battle scenes cinema can do at this time. Also no doubt it doesn't hold a candle to the real thing.

And we know this because in 5 years they'll be another film that everybody will proclaim as the most harrowing war footage ever and the cycle will start over again.
