Movie Reviews

TNT RoughCut - 10/10 by Graham Verdon This just may be the greatest war movie ever made.
New York Daily News - 10/10 by Elizabeth Weitzman Here is something great and startling -- not necessarily the kind of comforting, consensus-creating film that wins Oscars, but unquestionably a movie that will live in the history of the medium.
San Francisco Chronicle - 10/10 by Mick LaSalle Unique and courageous. It may be counted as one of the year's few steps forward in cinema.
Village Voice - 9/10 by J. Hoberman As mystical as it is gritty, as despairing as it is detached.
Film.com - 9/10 by John Hartl Could be called the "Red Badge of Courage" of World War II movies.
Time - 9/10 by Richard Corliss The film is a gorgeous garland on an unknown soldier's grave.
Mr. Showbiz - 9/10 by Richard T. Jameson It's the awesome, metaphysically charged spectacle of man doing terrible things to man within the multicolored and multifarious cathedral of Nature.
Washington Post - 9/10 by Michael O'Sullivan The disturbing ideas it plants in the soil of the soul need time and darkness ? not light ? to germinate.
Film.com - 9/10 by Tom Keogh Misshapen but magnificent vision of a soulful quest -- in the thick of misery and fear -- for the meaning of our lives.
TV Guide Magazine - 8/10 by Maitland McDonagh An intensely internalized portrait of external pandemonium, a slippery, insidiously haunting work of poetry rather than brilliantly realized pulp.
Chicago Sun-Times - 8/10 by Roger Ebert The movie's schizophrenia keeps it from greatness (this film has no firm idea of what it is about), but doesn't make it bad. It is, in fact, sort of fascinating: a film in the act of becoming, a field trial, an experiment in which a dreamy poet meditates on stark reality.
Newsweek - 8/10 by David Ansen Juxtaposes beauty and horror to fashion a savage and lyrical cinematic poem.
