From the valley of The Broadway Melody, Andrew and Dave reach a peak with the exceptional All Quiet on the Western Front, a masterful anti-war epic that looks at World War One through the perspective of German soldiers. Directed by Lewis Milestone, this powerful film has been banned in many countries around the world, from Germany to Australia, and leaves a searing mark on anyone who watches it.
In this discussion, Andrew and Dave explore their relationships to war, alongside the importance of telling this kind of narrative on film. Eventually, the two hosts ask the important question: Does the Best Picture winner All Quiet on the Western Front matter anymore?
