From the all-time classics of All Quiet On The Western
Front, The Bridge On The River Kwai, and The Great Escape all the way to the contemporary
hits of Hacksaw Ridge, Dunkirk, and 1917 (most of which have won multiple Oscars)
and everything in between, war movies are the perfect vehicles for exploring countless
subjects in hard-hitting fashion.
Whether it’s laying bare the sheer,
gut-wrenching brutality of violence, the cruelty of human nature, or the rare occasions
that hope shone through the darkness, war films are the place to go if you want
to experience some of the finest example of cinema ever made.
there’s one aspect of the genre that doesn’t get nearly as much attention: films
that draw attention to the consequences war brings, either on an individual or
an entire community. We’ve all seen enough war films now to know that war (as put forward by Edwin Starr) is good for "absolutely nothing", but we rarely consider
what happens when the fighting comes to an end or just how far the impact of
the conflict reaches beyond the battlefield.
just some amazing films that examined the consequences of war.
