Little Dieter Needs to Fly

Little Dieter Needs to Fly ★★★★

I wonder if it was intentional or not that the filmmaker played into Dieter's pre-capture, over simplification of his moral involvement in the war, in trying to fly planes. If intentional, I find it to be an extremely psychologically compelling undertone to the film and "characterization" of Dieter, that in many ways mimics the philosophy of a great number of volunteer soldiers who fought in Vietnam.

It also kinda freaked me out that he died the day I was born...
