Cinema review: All Quiet on the Western Front (1930)
All Quiet on the Western Front, released in 1930, is as compelling today as it was 78 years ago. One thing I appreciate about the older films is the ability to convey the horror without the graphic reproduction of blood and guts in modern films such as Saving Private Ryan. This movie looks at the consequences of whipped up patriotism to justify the unjust. It is a timely movie to the era we are in now.
