GREAT REMINDER OF HOW MUCH WE ALL OWE TO WAR VETERANS

November 10, 2021
THIS MOVIE WAS ESPECIALLY SPECIAL TO ME BECAUSE MY FATHER WAS IN THE SECOND WORLD WAR, AND HIS FATHER WAS IN THE FIRST WORLD WAR, AND ONE OF MY UNCLES WAS IN THE KOREAN WAR. IN ADDITION, THREE OF MY FORMER CO-WORKERS WERE IN VIETNAM, SO, WHENEVER, I SEE SOMEONE IN A MILITARY UNIFORM, OR SOMEONE WEARING ANY FORM OF MILITARY OF INSIGNIA, I ALWAYS MAKE IT A POINT TO THANK THEM FOR THEIR SERVICE. IN FACT, ONE OF THE REASONS I COULDN'T VOTE FOR DONALD TRUMP WAS BECAUSE HE WAS SO DISRESPECTFUL TO WAR HEROES LIKE JOHN MC CAIN, GEN. COLIN POWELL, AND LT COL ADAM VINDNAM. ALSO, ONE OF THE REASONS I DISLIKED "HAROLD AND MAUDE" SO MUCH WAS BECAUSE OF THE WAY IT RIDICULED A MILITARY OFFICIAL. AND ONE OF THE REASONS I LIKED "COMING HOME" WAS BECAUSE I FELT THAT JANE FONDA MADE THAT FILM AS A WAY TO ATONE FOR ALL THE MISTAKES SHE MADE DURING THE VIETNAM WAR.

Not a typical WWII movie

November 5, 2021
Most WWII movies have an intense focus on combat or lionize the veterans as monumental heroes. This movie really gets beyond that to the vets as people grappling with trauma from their early 20s, when they were just scared kids thrown into battle. It really feels unlike any other WWII movie I've seen, and it's a super meaningful record of a generation that isn't really around anymore.

Enjoyable and interesting movie, highly recommended!

January 29, 2020
I've seen many films about D-Day and WWII, some of them memorable (especially "Saving Private Ryan") and some just ok. "Sunken Roads" is a great addition to this amazing history, telling a unique true story where different generations intersect. I really enjoyed watching and have a lot of respect for its young director.
