Aro Recommended Johnny Got His Gun

 

USA 1971, 111 minutes
Dir. Dalton Trumbo
Rating: [M]
Genres: Classics, Cult / War

Topics: Period - 1910s.

 

Aroview: Excoriating anti-war statement based on the dir.'s own novel, concerns an ordinary infantryman in WW1 and his nightmare experiences.

In a casualty ward, he wakes up from the trenches to the nightmare of quadriplegia, unable to communicate with anyone around him. Despite the sometimes rudimentary filming, this remains recommended viewing. Sidenote - was the inspiration for heavy-rock band Metallica's song 'One".
