    To End All Wars (2001)

    Found this film on internet today. Its a true story about prisoners of war on the Burma Railroad, "The railway of death". Mostly soldiers from the Argyle and Sutherland Highlanders.
    This film has a tremendous message, could argue case for pathafists. Its about the right spirit in horrible suffering, loving your enemies. Its well worth watching.
    Thanks Hans Deventer, Ryan Scott - "thanks" for this post

In spite of its label, it displays harshness, judgmentalism, a critical spirit, and all its capacity for discrimination end in nit-picking and divisiveness."-Mildred Bangs Wynkoop

    Just saw it last week. Interesting religious imagery and themes.

    I find it interesting how few of the recent WWII movies touch on the war with the Japanese.
    "Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us wthout end, for they do so with the approval of their own conscience."
    - C.S. Lewis
