All Quiet on the Western Front

All Quiet on the Western Front

I’m a little late to this, but after seeing it last week, I cannot not recommend it. I remember reading the book as a teenager, and while I couldn’t remember a thing from the plot, I still remember how I felt reading it. And what a powerful movie adaptation this is. None of the heroism that usually comes with war movies. Just the horror of war in all its explicit and subtle ways. Content warning: violence, lots of violence.
