Letters from Iwo Jima (2006)

ACHIEVEMENT IN SOUND EDITING The island of Iwo Jima stands between the American military force and the home islands of Japan. Therefore the Imperial Japanese Army is desperate to prevent it from falling into American hands and providing a launching point for an invasion of Japan. General Tadamichi Kuribayashi is given command of the forces on the island and sets out to prepare for the imminent attack. General Kuribayashi, however, does not favor the rigid traditional approach recommended by his subordinates, and resentment and resistance fester among his staff. In the lower echelons, a young soldier, Saigo, a poor baker in civilian life, strives with his friends to survive the harsh regime of the Japanese army itself, all the while knowing that a fierce battle looms. When the American invasion begins, both Kuribayashi and Saigo find strength, honor, courage, and horrors beyond imagination.

  • A beautiful in-depth history of Japanese cinema with vivid posters and stunning photography.

Talk about an interesting cast worth watching.

The movie follows interconnected stories of love, relationships and poverty in this slice of life American tale. Looks powerful! In theaters March 6th 2009.

D'Onofrio (Law & Order: Criminal Intent) does an outstanding job in the lead role of this film. Although one may be sympatheitc to Hoffman's cause you can't help but cringe at how his personnal struggles (including drug addiction) at times overshadowed and diminished his activism. But hey, nobodys perfect. Abbie Hoffamn is definately a figure in American history people should know about.

This is a must see documentary about Amish teens. When they turn 16, they go through a period called 'Rumspringa' where they get indulge in the outside world in order to decide whether they want to remain in the church as adults. Pretty cool, huh? Rather than coercing kids through fear they allow them the freedom to experience and choose. Unfortunately, many of the kids go overboard (some even becoming drug addicts), however they demonstrate a kind of calm lucidity and mature rationalization of their circumstances for being, afterall, American teens. Its really interesting.

Everyone should watch this movie. Spike Lee's film discusses the exploitation and racism involved in the portrayal of African Americans in the media, how we are all susceptible to it and can become complicit in perpetuating its manipulation. We all know the media isn't above exploitation, but this film reminds us just how sinister the form can be and how its corrupt practices shape our social consciousness.

  • In my opinion, this is Kevin Costner's best movie. It's a classic crime film with everything you'd expect and want: organized crime, gangsters, cops and people getting whacked.
