    The Human Condition III: A Soldier's Prayer

    ★★★

    Review on the entire trilogy

    The Human Condition is a wonderful trilogy of epic proportions with an undeniably monumental scope, impressive cinematography, and compelling though inconsistent performances that make for a worthwhile experience despite its length. No doubt a fine achievement in its own right.

This was the filmmaker's soul laid bare, a grand display of his megalomania and excessive self-importance. One can only imagine how unapologetically insufferable he must have been to be around in real life (e.g. harassing officials at the Cannes Film…
