Saving Private Ryan

Saving Private Ryan

We round out the final installment of our Tom Hanks trifecta with a look back at one of the most highly revered war films of all time. Joe admits that director Steven Spielberg was successful in rending a highly authentic portrayal of WWII combat, but suggests that in the process of bringing the European theatre of war into cinemas, audiences may have gotten too wrapped up in the American flag to see its shortcomings.

What’s this week’s suggestion? Here’s a hint!

“Always with the negative waves Moriarty, always with the negative waves!”
