Military

The Invisible War Poster

Fair warning – the trailer for Kirby Dick‘s newest documentary The Invisible War is fairly intense. It covers an impossibly difficult subject – the widespread sexual abuse in the US military. The raw number tossed out? 500,000. That’s half a million women sexually assaulted in the armed forces, and as the trailer portends, there isn’t much done to curb the problem. Hopefully the work is balanced, and hopefully its taken as the honest criticism that it aspires to be. Inevitably, some will believe Dick is attacking the military, but while it’s a vital part of our nation and comprised of over a million dedicated and honorable citizens, the military is one government institution that demands this kind of keen oversight. Especially on an issue like this. Check out the trailer for yourself:

Why Watch? Because Dr. Seuss wants to tell you how to behave now that the war is over. Dr. Seuss and Frank Capra teamed up for this educational film shown to military personnel stationed in Germany after the war was won. As they point out, it’s a delicate peace. There can be a comedic quality to the way this film is presented (especially in light of its treatment of German history), but it’s also important to see this in the context of when and why it was created. It was a film specifically meant to keep its audience on its guard long after they finished watching it. It was also a serious flick made by two men with strong senses of humor. Sadly, unlike Seuss’s other work, none of it rhymes. What does it cost? Just 12 minutes of your time. Check out Your Job in Germany for yourself:

Your weekly fix of great movies made before you were born that you should check out before you die. The persistent question in To Be or Not To Be is this: what use is a clown during wartime? There might not be a definitive answer, but Ernst Lubitsch‘s most dramatic work (by default) is a comedy that has to be taken seriously. It’s also startling proof that it’s harder to laugh when you’re standing too close to the fire. It’s only in stepping back that you can feel the warmth without getting hurt. That was the case when this comedy about Hitler and Hamlet premiered right smack dab in the middle of Word War II.
