Give Us Your Opinion of This Movie!

My Review:

Clint Eastwood directed “Letters from Iwo Jima” as a companion piece to “Flags of our Fathers.”  Iwo Jima take the same circumstances and looks at it from the Japanese point of view.  The movie is nominated for the Academy Award for Best Picture and Clint Eastwood is nominated as Best Director this year.  Except for a couple of scenes, the whole movie is in Japanese with English subtitles.  But that doesn’t interfere with us getting close to the characters.  The movie is filled with emotions, and is difficult to watch sometimes.  It’s a war movie, so expect the requisite violence and bloodshed, and cold-hearted onscreen behavior.
