Letters from Iwo Jima ★★★★½

It's very rare for an American director to tell a story from the other side of the spectrum. I was wary about this movie to be quiet honest especially after see Eastwood's American Sniper!

Lo and behold! What an immaculately directed movie by the veteran who shows the humanistic depiction of characters in spite of the situation they were in. Striking battle set pieces and solid performances especially from Ken Watanabe. Great score and one of Clint's best.
