Saboteur: Code Name Morituri

Bernhard Wicki United States, 1965

Brotherdeacon's rating of the film Morituri

Not the typical anti-war film, but a thinking war film that doesn't stoop to easy answers or high-contrast morality. Wonderful cast, tightly structured story, great B &W cinematography by Conrad Hall, all which left me with an aftertaste that lasted for days as I mulled over Bernhard Wicki's directorial decision making and the characterizations by Marlon Brando, Yul Brenner, Janet Margolin and a solid cast.
