I wonder what people make of the significance of a very bloody war film about the actual toll of war on human bodies at a time when for the United States (at least) war has been reduced to an entirely technological affair of 'smart' bombs (how smart can they be if they kill and maim?) and killing at the furthest possible distance from the manipulation and touch of the human hand? Could this add new meaning to the film's use of *hand*-held camera? Sincerely, Edward R.
