It remains an anti-war masterpiece. [09 Feb 2007, p.C6]

Anti-war statements of the cinema in the subsequent 80 years have occasionally surpassed Lewis Milestone’s technically and artistically groundbreaking film, but few can match it for relentless despair or elemental fury—both on and off the battlefield.

All Quiet on the Western Front is the definitive World War I motion picture, the best of a surprisingly small class of movies.
