Fairly unique among war films for its nearly seamless incorporation of stock footage into its fictional narrative (amounting to approximately 25% of the overall running time, and culled from the roughly 18,000 hours worth of World War II footage preserved at the Imperial War Museum in London), Overlord is at once exacting in its historical specificity and timeless in its evocation of life senselessly lost.

It’s this contrast in scale, carefully reiterated throughout the film, that gives Overlord its cumulative power. It is also what makes its novel mixture of archival footage and carefully staged dramatic scenes (shot by Kubrick cinematographer John Alcott with old German lenses that place the fictional black-and-white sequences in nice harmony with the documentary images) more than simply an aesthetic novelty.

Despite the technical effort, Alcott’s black-and-white celluloid doesn’t so much resemble wartime British films… as much as echo the kitchen-sink realism that followed in the postwar years. It’s still a feat of period filmmaking. More than that, Overlord’s revivification of a wasteland Europe offers up a powerful whip lesson for the postwar complacent: that the waging of war, even this most romanticized of conflicts, means bringing a corpse-mountain hell to someone’s home neighborhood.
