Letters from Iwo Jima

I saw this movie last weekend, I had heard about it when it came out and wanted to see it, and I finally did. It's a very intense movie in many ways and deals with a very harsh battle towards the end of WW II. It is all in the Japanese perspective of the battle. I really like when war type movies are able to portray what it was like for the individual during the battle. While watching is at times rather depressing I wouldn't say the movie is a downer, the english dubbing is done rather well.

Thanks for the great review. I've been wondering if I should see this.

I saw this movie on my flight from NY to England. I loved the cinematography, and thought that the story was engaging, but the graphicness of it all weighed me down a little. It definitely left me a little somber.
