Saving Private Ryan

Saving Private Ryan

The opening sequence on the beach is harrowing, mind-blowing, intense, a sensory overload that really brings to life the horrors of war in a way that no other film has managed to do so. (For me, so far.) Once that’s through, there’s still two hours of horror, war, tension, needless death, moral questions but also camaraderie, bravery, dark humour, and really some astonishing scenes.
