I saw this movie last weekend and I think I have been traumatized. I can't stop thinking about it. In particular, there is one scene in the movie where one of the main Japanese characters is "murdered" (my interpretation of what happened) after he surrenders to the American troops. That character looks a lot like my father when he was younger and for several nights this week, I could not sleep well thinking about it as though my father was being killed. I have to say that the movie was excellent (along with "Flags of Our Fathers") and do recommend it. I thought Clint Eastwood did a fabulous job interpreting the experiences of people on both sides. I think it really reminds people that war is brutal, regardless of what side you're on. It's really poignant given what is going on today. However, I seriously need to watch something completely mindless this weekend to decompress.
