FRI­DAY

LET­TERS FROM IWO JIMA

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - WEEK IN MOVIES -

3.55PM, MASTER­PIECE

Clint East­wood’s rapid- fi re re­turn to WWII’s bloody Battle of Iwo Jima af­ter Flags of Our Fa­thers is a far su­pe­rior eff ort in ev­ery depart­ment. Filmed from the per­spec­tive of Ja­panese sol­diers, the spar­tan sto­ry­telling builds omi­nously into a tren­chant cri­tique of the fu­til­ity of war. Stars Ken Watan­abe.
