Come and See

Come and See ★★★★★

Francois Truffaut argued in 1973 that simply depicting war inherently glorifies it, so every war film is inevitably pro-war. In 1985, Elem Klimov proved him wrong.

The horrors of history as an apocalyptic metaphor of metaphysical evil; an unsparing depiction of inhumanity helmed by one of the greatest performances of all time, Come and See stands as a memorial to moral catastrophe.
