1930’s All Quiet on the Western Front is pretty probable the greatest warfare film ever made, so it’s astounding that Edward Berger’s own tackle Erich Maria Remarque’s e-book in large part manages to capture the same stage of unrelenting terror and tragic inevitability that made that authentic model so effective. Berger’s version makes the audience feel the griminess of battle, the never-ending nightmare that seeps into your pores and skin just like the blood splatter out of your fellow soldier. Even within the rare moments of pleasure, All Quiet on the Western Front in no way forgets the horrors that surround these soldiers at every flip. War is hell, and Berger makes us experience every lick of the flames.
