  • Letters from Iwo Jima

    I have just watched 'Letters from Iwo Jima' for the second time. One of the best war movies ever in my opinion. Directed by Clint Eastwood and starring Ken Watanabe as a Japanese General who commanded the defensive forces but had spent several years living in the U.S. prior to the war. Wonderful movie!

    a sad, lonely, melancholic film, for all its brutal action and bloodshed, with moments of sheer poetry and others of heartbreaking grief.

    I actually wanted to see that but never got around to it, I saw Flags of our Fathers, so obviously the sister movie was my next choice.
    A wild liberal appears! Conservative uses logical reasoning and empirical evidence! It's super effective! Wild liberal faints.

        Yes, it is in Japanese with English subtitles. I'd hate to think anyone would dub it to have English speaking voices. That would spoil much of what comes across as a tremendously authentic portrayal of the Pacific war from the Japanese perspective.

          Letters from Iwo Jima was hands down better than Flags of our Fathers. Flags just had something missing about it. Letters was just so compelling.

              It was a lot better than I thought it would be and Yes it was better than Flags of our Fathers.
