Spielberg is God. I know such an opening statement can raise doubts on


my objectivity. But isnt good cinema suppose to make you emotional,


touch your innermost soul, tug at your heartstrings and generally make


you feel more humane and less objective. Inspite of being a working day


& a late night show I was wide awake throughout the movie.The interval


in fact appeared surreal and dreamlike to me. Suffice is to say that


Spielberg is definitely one of the greatest director alive today.


Attempting to recreate the D Day, Spielberg demonstrates absolute


command over his language.The dull grey background , expressions on the


soldiers faces just before combat, sound of the bullets reechoing on the


water, sudden silence after constant bombing sound to reflect the


blocking of ear drums......it all helps to actually transpose the


audience inside the screen itself. All the battle scenes were handled


with a hand held camera which also was running, jumping, falling, moving


jerkily with the soldiers. It resembles newsclips from war torn areas


further enhancing the sense of real war.


The story itself has its share of irony. Eight men go in search of Ryan


to bring him back home as all his brothers have died elsewhere during


the war.After losing two of their comrades they finally find Ryan.


However Ryan refuse to leave his comrades in arms who were holding a


bridge till the main troops arrive. Eventually the remaining six men


stay with Ryan hoping to save him from the enemy. It is this final


decision of these six men which question the need of war itself. However


it is too naive to label Saving Private Ryan as an anti-war movie. To me


it is basically a movie which restores faith in humanity. The whole


concept of war as a result start appearing inhuman.


All the lead players did an excellent job. However the film really


belongs to those who were behind the scenes - the makeup artist, the


sound people, the cinematographer, the editor and eventually the


director.Lastly one can only wish that Spielberg live another 100 years


so that we can laugh and cry with him and try to be a little more human.
