Fog of War


Friday, January 12, 2007

There's been a lot of buzz around Clint Eastwood's recent directorial feat of making back to back World War II movies -- told from two distinct points of view. Flags of Our Fathers tells the story of the battle of Iwo Jima from the American perspective, and Letters from Iwo Jima is from the Japanese perspective, with English subtitles. Kurt Andersen talks with writer Evan Thomas about Eastwood's films, as well as Thomas' book, Sea of Thunder, an account of the largest naval battle you've probably never heard of.
