Iwo Jima. This is the case with the famous photograph of the Marines struggling to raise the flag on Mount Suribachi, and the forthcoming Letters from Iwo Jima tell the story (bravely) from a Japanese perspective. A definitive assessment of any film may have to wait until both halves of the diptych have been seen, but this is a unique, exciting event. Given Steven Spielberg’s production credit, it’s no surprise that the film shares structural similarities with Schindler’s List and (especially) Saving Private Ryan: a complex set of back-and-forth flashbacks inspired by James Bradley’s (Tom) research. McCarthy), his father, among the group pictured, to get to the truth, not about the larger historical event of the battle, but about the personal stories of the Marines picked up randomly that day. We jump back and forth from the gritty, whitewashed chaos of the gruesome battle to the bond-hawking tour of the three survivors immediately afterward. There’s an understanding that this single heroic image had to pay (literally) for its ultimate victory for a war-weary country, but also how arbitrary the image was – a group of Marines planting a flag. , which a politician wanted to hang on his wall, an angry officer demanded that it be taken down and replaced, an important picture taken during the second raising of the flag. The invisibility of the Marines also led to identity confusion, with one dead man’s parent mistakenly masked in favor of another, but the missing man raising the first one. flag.

Much of the film follows Navy SEALs Doc Bradley (Ryan Phillips) and Marines Rene Gagnon (Jesse Bradford) and Ira Hayes (Adam Beach) after the battle, which affects them in different ways as they go around the campaign trail with ridiculous ballyhoo. passed. , and the irony is that Gannon, the least injured, caught on the front line, is a far more heroic but actually far more effective speaker than the damaged Hayes (a Pima Indian whose bottle troubles are still known) and Bradley. It takes a while for everyone to focus, but the even cast (including Barry Pepper, Jamie Bell, Paul Walker, Robert Patrick and Neal McDonough) are individually good, even if they don’t last long; staff, with John Benjamin Hickey and John Slattery as hoarders and hand-bearers, and Melanie Lynskey Gagnon as the opportunistic daughter.
Eastwood has always been concerned with American history and the issues of the day, and here he is able to appreciate the warriors while casting a skeptical (but not cynical) eye on the political machine they’re fighting. Beach, who was in the Wind Talkers group (previously played on TV and in film by Lee Marvin and Tony Curtis, and mythologized in a Johnny Cash song): but there is one scene where Hayes gets into a drunken fight after being refused service. It’s a subtle take on racism that doesn’t allow Indians in a Chicago bar, with Hayes tolerating the thoughtless stupidity of all the whites, from calling him a “boss” to saying he would have been a better conversation. used the tomahawk against the Japanese. In the opening scene, it shows that the Pima historically fought on the side of the white man during the Indian Wars, and the rest of the film shows that they made the wrong decision. By using Iceland instead of Ivo, the film manages a different persona than both Saving Private Ryan and The Thin Red Line – in this case, keeping the enemy almost entirely in their hiding places, only showing the devastating effects of their last-ditch defense against the Japanese. soil.
This series of Flags of Our Fathers tells the other side of the story – from the point of view of the forces ordered to invade Iwo Jima, a desolate outpost of the United States, considered to be “holy Japanese soil.” to protect him. In terms of Hollywood genre, it goes all the way back to The Silence on the Western Front, which saw the war from the perspective of the “enemy”, although the use of all-Japanese actors and subtitled dialogue makes it a little comparable to Mel Gibson’s performance. an exercise in retreading familiar stories with disorienting, “authentic” plots that show how superficially foreign other cultures are (plot-wise, Letters has a lot in common with The Alamo). It’s a long, award-worthy picture, and a few moments veer a little into “Oscar clip” territory: working with letters found on a dead enemy prompts terrified soldiers to recognize an important kinship with the enemy. It can be found in any number of earlier films (including All Quiet ) and is unfortunately subject to stories that drive home (“that soldier’s mother … was like my mother”). Otherwise, it’s a confident, engaging, brilliant effort unlike any other film Eastwood has directed – but the odd moments recall the awakened neuroses of Josie Wales or Unforgiven War and even the military madness of Heartbreak Ridge.
Lt. Gen. Tadamichi Kuribayashi (Ken Watanabe), commanding the defense of Iwo Jima, is carrying a pearl-handled American rifle that his men believe was taken from a dead officer, but given to him by friends at the end of his happy tour in the 1930s. (and which, in the end, he uses only for himself). A charismatic leader, imaginative leader, and shrewd strategist, Kuribayashi is reeling from recent defeats and suffering at the hands of a superior command that has withdrawn the sea and air support he needs to defend his homeland. He is also in close contact with a group of fanatical subordinates who seem eager to commit suicide before the situation becomes hopeless. A surprising sequence that resolves the mystery raised in “Flags of Our Fathers” finds a group of warriors ordered to be killed one by one by putting live grenades into their hearts and dismembering their bodies, although Kuribayashi specifically orders these troops to fall back and regroup after initial defeats instead of withdrawing from the fight for good. Fanatics like Ito (Shidou Nakamura) ironically survive because a tank doesn’t run over him as he hugs a landmine on the battlefield, hoping to make one last big move. , but the film gives the lie to this by showing how they disobey the orders they take with exception and are far more useful than the dishonorable comrades who survive to fight again in battle.

Among the large, brutally tempered cast of characters, hot-headed officers such as Olympic equestrian Baron Nishi (Tsuyoshi Ihara), a personal friend of Douglas Fairbanks and Mary Pickford, stand out, but the focus eventually narrows to a conscript-baker couple. Saigo (Kazunari Nonomiya) and captured military police officer Shimizu (Ryo Kase). The film devotes much of its emotion to their individual survival: after they take great risks to join Kurbashi’s forces, Ito considers their flight a betrayal and C.O. mixes. Shimizu, who is on the front line for refusing to kill the dog, eventually surrenders to the Americans and is in the final G.I
