War Movie: Review. By Richard Schertzer.
Summers dives deep into the heart and psyche of the art, history and cinema of war pictures that have shaped our society with bravura and style that looks like something from an old 1990s PBS series that people used to binge on back in the day.
The series takes on how war in cinema has evolved over time and the effects of war on its soldiers and how history has affected the landscape of war films. Going from year to year and era to era truly shows how far war films have come in the landscape and cultural zeitgeist of the cinema world.
The series serves as a testament to such great feats in filmmaking and images to the wars that cultivated the grounds of such amazing storytelling, which makes this series impossible to ignore.
I highly recommend this series to up and coming filmmakers if they are looking to break out into the field as they will need this knowledge in learning film history and understanding the concepts and basis for the majority of this genre of film and how filmmakers approached this craft when working and tackling the subject of a certain type of war because no war is ever the same.
All in all, this series has got to be seen by a wider audience to understand the full scope of its stories and the legacy that each war film left behind in the Hollywood pantheon that shaped and reshaped generations many times over.
