    Any suggestions for Nazi movies?

    Amazing Klaus Maria Brandauer is immensely versatile. Can play a bond villain as well as a romantic lead. He is a master and big favorite of mine. In "Mephisto" he is creepy in his metamorphosis of a role, I grant you that. I implore you to explore his many other creations.

    what is everyone's favorite war film and why?

    I am a big fan of films that transcend the movie-watching experience. When I first saw "The Thin Red Line", almost 20 years ago, I was entranced by Malick's attempt to do something different. It certainly made an impression on me. Most probably if I watch it right now, perhaps I won't have such a high opinion of it. I believe that sometimes movies make a stamp on filmmaking history at the time they are made, and as time goes by, some lose impact and some don't. The ones that never lose impact are truly unique. Directors the likes of Bunuel, Antonioni, Capra, Kubrick and many many more make such films.

    A must see: István Szabó's "Mephisto" (1981) with a knockout performance by the genius Klaus Maria Brandauer. Also, another dark film: Luchino Visconti's "The Damned" (1969)

    I, for one, find Richard Gere unbearable; he is so conceited and pompous. He looks like an ****, to boot. After doing "Tree of Life", Malick has succumb to making tripe. I recently tried to watch his latest opus, "Song to Song"; it was god-awful! Had to put it down without finishing it.

    Definitely deserve mention: Sam Fuller's "The Steel Helmet" (1951) Terrence Malick's "The Thin Red Line" (1998) Kon Ichikawa's "The Burmese Harp" (1956)

    what is everyone's favorite war film and why?

    First thoughts: Finest acting, directing and writing: Trial on the Road (1986), The Ascent (1977), Ballad of a Soldier (1959), Father of a Soldier (1965) Funniest war comedy: La Grande Vadrouille (1966) Great war film, but almost too difficult to watch: Come and See (1985)
  14. This horrendous excuse of a movie, being shown at the moment on TCM, came out the same year as Pee Wee's Playhouse. Paul Reubens (under the name Paul Mall) stars as an UFO alien (voice only). His voice sounds like Pee Wee's periodically. I guess he was developing the character.
