Saving Private Ryan

Saving Private Ryan

There is no redemption in imperialism. This film is a piece of slimy propaganda that attempts, by acknowledging the human price of war, to suggest that if you narrow the framework, you find some decency and human value. By refusing the broader context and limiting it to a numbers game or a matter of a mother's heart or the after-war efforts of one man (which we never see), it feeds the lie of American values. Even this film's attempts to question their mission comes off as propagandizing.
