Letters From Iwo Jima

I finally got able to see the latest Clint Eastwood movie and after reading that it was a future classic, I wasn't disappointed at all. Besides having so many beautiful shots (in a war movie? hell yeah...), an unique cinematography much appropriatted to its theme (mainly dry and lifeless colors like brown and grey) and an amazing serenity in its time construction, there were also so many different aspects shown that I would say this is probably one of the most complete war movies ever made. Examples? The fact that in a war there aren't just two opposing sides but a multitude of human beings involved, that we all pretty much have the same dreams, etc etc. Ok, I recognize that this may sound like a cliché, but, again, it's all shown with such a neutral point of view that any possible sense of déjà-vu is completely eliminated.
