I'll get to the state of the literary post-war (well it's not really post, is it?) landscape soon enough. I do want to talk more about the state of movies and how it seems so lackluster compared to the previous major war.  The main point could have been how so much more status quo the current batch of movies seem. But let me not dwell on that. Let's instead just look at a war movie with some sense of history and some sense of operatic theme. Especially when compared to even the likes of Apocalypse Now.
 Not that I'm diminishing the very fact of war and all the horrors it entails. Also some of the documentaries have been absolutely amazing.
