World Cinema Saturdays

This Saturday: THE WORLD AT WAR

It was inevitable that a globe-spanning conflict like World War II would inspire a diverse genre of combat movies, as wide-ranging in origin, focus, and viewpoint as the nations and cultures which fought the war. The resulting films run the gamut from heroic to reflexive to bitterly sardonic, and serve to underscore the oft-repeated observation that "war is a microcosm of human endeavor and experience.”
