World Cinema Saturdays

To watch UCSD-TV movies, tune in to your local cable station Saturday evenings from 4pm to midnight.

It was inevitable that a complex, globe-spanning conflict like World War II would inspire a 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, underscoring the oft-repeated observation war offers a microcosm of human endeavor and experience distilled to its brutal essence. As proven by the success of such works as Saving Private Ryan and Band of Brothers, war continues to exert a powerful attraction for filmmakers and audiences alike.
