Letters from Iwo Jima

Posted By on Mon, Oct 9, 2006 at 10:06 AM

The complement film to Flags of Our Fathers also from Clint Eastwood that tells the WWII story from the Japanese perspective won't be released until 2007, making it ineligible for Oscar consideration this year.  Says the L.A. Times Tom O'Neil,

Frankly, I think it's a dumb idea. Wasn't the whole point of making that movie to give us the flipside of the Yankee-viewed "Flags of Our Fathers"? Just imagine how nifty-cool it would be to view "Flags," then refill your popcorn box and head over to the other side of the cineplex to catch "Letters"! The simultaneous release would also boost "Flags'" Oscar chances because it would make its debut more of a cinematic event.

    It's the slowest for movies. "Watchmen," the much anticipated film adapted from, arguably, the greatest graphic novel of all time, has stirred the emotions of critics.
