My favourite war-films
Alexander Nevsky  [DVD]
"Key Stalin-era film from Eisenstein ; sadly the battle-scene on ice was ripped off for 'King Arthur' & it was quoted in 'Red Dawn'!!!!"
Life and Death of Colonel Blimp [Special Edition] [DVD] 
"Another classic from Powell & Pressburger that was banned at the time. For extra value, get a DVD with other P&P films on - A Matter of Life & Death and I Know Where I'm Going-"
Rome, Open City [DVD] 
"Rossellini's brilliant film made as WWII ended in Italy - along with Visconti's 'Ossessione', an early example of Italian Neo-Realism..."
Ice Cold in Alex [DVD] 
"Extremely entertaining British WWII film which starred the late John Mills and makes you want to drink lager...."
From Here To Eternity [DVD] 
"Excellent military-tale which leads up to the Pearl Harbour attack. Scathing presentation of the US-military; based on the James L. Jones novel...."
Paths Of Glory [DVD] 
"Much more succesful on war than the overrated 'Full Metal Jacket'; up there with key WWI films like 'All is Quiet on the Western Front' & 'Regeneration'"
Fires on the Plain (Tuttle Classics)
"Kon Ichikawa's 'Fires on the Plain' & 'The Burmese Harp' are both sadly not on DVD at present- a travesty, see also 'Come & See' and 'The Conformist'"
"Bergman's unnamed war reduces itself to a married-couple & shows the effects of war....Underrated in Bergman's oeuvre-"
The Battle of Algiers [DVD] (1966)
"Groundbreaking documentary-like film concerning the French in Algeria. Has influenced 'Schindler's List' amongst others & has recently been watched by US military to 'get' Iraqi insurgence...."
Patton [DVD] 
"Excellent biopic co-written by Francis Ford Coppola; takes in the latter parts of WWII and Patton's time in Africa & Europe...."
Soldier Blue [DVD] (1970)
"An example from the US past & a companion film to 'Ulzana's Raid' Infamous scenes of genocide at the end...."
Salo [DVD] 
"Pasolini's final film that places De Sade in WWII & the last fascist state of Salo...."
The Deer Hunter: Special Edition (2 discs) [DVD] 
"Cimino's epic still remains interesting, even if we know the russian-roulette was symbolic rather than historical. What do I know?- I like 'Heaven's Gate' !!!!"
The Tin Drum [DVD] 
"Excellent adaptation of Gunter Grass' brilliant novel ; bizarrely accused of child-abuse in an U.S.-state...."
Lacombe Lucien [VHS]
"Shocking look at collaboration- something British people did under Nazi-occupation in the Channel Islands. File next to The Conformist, Salo & The Damned...."
Das Boot (Director's Cut) [DVD] 
"Excellent look at the U-Boat experience during WWII; the expanded-TV-version is probably better value at six-hours...."
The Big Red One - The Reconstruction (2 Disc Special Edition) [DVD] 
"Not what Samuel Fuller envisioned, but as good as it gets. I think this is a brilliant war-film - both Fuller & Marvin were WWII veterans, so it has an authenticity Spielberg cannot buy."
Come & See [DVD]  [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
"This film ought to be issued on DVD properly in the UK; a shocking work that makes 'Saving Private Ryan' seem lightweight...."
Salvador--Special Edition [DVD]
"Excellent film from Oliver Stone, looking at Latin America- a place the USA have messed with multiple times (Chile, Iran-Contra, Cuba, Nicaragua et al)"
Casualties Of War [DVD]
"Underrated mini My-Lai from Brian De Palma. Has relevance to US-behaviour in contemporary Iraq...."
Europa Europa [DVD]
"One of the most bizarre stories if WWII and a European WWII film alongside Ashes & Diamonds, The Pianist & Rome, Open City...."
Stalingrad [DVD] 
"The German-side of Stalingrad, a similar approach to 'Das Boot'; avoid the dreadful 'Enemy at the Gates' though..."
Schindler's List [DVD] 
"A key film, despite the dubious shower-sequence. See also 'Night & Fog', 'Shoah' & 'The Last Days'"
The Thin Red Line  [DVD]
"Malick's third-masterpiece, based on a novel by James L. Jones. Far superior to 'Saving Private Ryan'"
The Fog Of War [DVD] 
"A brilliant documentary that takes an interesting view on WWII, the Cold War & Vietnam...."
