If you want to have an idea of what an all-star cast looked like in the 60s, you should not miss out on watching The Dirty Dozen. Charles Bronson, Jim Brown, John Cassavetes, Telly Savalas, and Donald Sutherland, among many others, star in a movie about a band of military convicts sent on a mission behind enemy lines, in the lead-up to D-Day. It’s very interesting to observe how various character flaws go against each other to come up with something of consequence. Joe Cianciotto.

The effect of war is unpredictable, and there is no film that goes against generalizations and stereotypes like The Bridge on the River Kwai. This film centers on the harrowing experience of war imprisonment, coping with changes in the absence of hope, and finding meaning in whatever is available to you in your immediate environment. An army of weakened and impaired soldiers find themselves tasked to pour their hearts out in building a bridge, which symbolizes the greatest achievement they have ever made, only for this to be destroyed in the end. It’s interesting to see how war changes the perspective of those in captivity. Joe Cianciotto.
Charlie Sheen stars in this blockbuster that is set in the Vietnam War.

Critics have lauded the film for capturing the struggles of war, as close to reality as it happened in Vietnam. The film’s multiple Oscars include Best Picture and Best Director. Joe Cianciotto.
