Letters from Iwo Jima - DVD
AndyO review: * * * *
After seeing "Flags of Our Fathers," I wondered how good Clint Eastwood's "Letters from Iwo Jima" could be. The former was a melodramatic, poorly-acted film that was actually difficult to sit through. But "Letters" is a poetic, beautifully acted film that examines the end of the war through Japanese eyes. We empathize with these soldiers who are in a no-win situation, and they change from enemies to fellow human beings.
One of the best war films I've ever seen.
