Re: “Das Boot

It's hard to believe this guy gets paid to review films. Das boot was one of the most suspenseful and engaging films I've ever sat through. Flawless acting and directing. You felt like a crew member. Even someone with a basic education can see the crew are just ordinary men thrown into an extraordinary situation and hoping to survive long enough to make it back to their homes and families. The nazi officer in the officers mess was in the movie for that express purpose; to contrast against the rest of the officers who had no idealogical beliefs.
It seems to me the whole point of the film was to refute the propaganda by the allies which labelled all Germans evil party members hell bent on world domination. They were mostly no different from the allies, fighting a war they wanted nothing to do with.
Poor review and shame on you for turning others away from a great movie experience
