“Hank didn’t raise that flag. He raised the other one. The real flag.” -Ira Hayes Clint Eastwood’s World War II epic “FLAGS OF OUR FATHERS” follows the stories of the real men who raised the flag at Iowa Jim’s famously photographed in 1945. The American war film has always focused mainly on the experience of soldiers during combat. However Clint Eastwood does something decidedly different with this film. He takes an event in history most Americans are familiar with and gives us a narrative that changes the way we may see these events forever. Not only seeing the point of view of the soldiers, but also their families, their children. We must look at the war through the eyes of all effected by it. Eastwood does this with such ease and sincerity that the film’s heart is always intact. Spending a good deal of the film discussing how much soldiers are exploited to build the moral of a nation during war time, Clint Eastwood asserts his knowledge of a nations short comings, however he does not seek to condemn the government of the nation. Rather paint a true picture of both the good and the bad surrounding the events. He also takes decidedly powerful look at PTSD and it’s effects from multiple points of view as well. The slower parts of the film’s story could stand on their own honestly without the help of battle scenes. However when the battle scenes come Eastwood does some of his best work from a technical perspective. Beautifully shot battle scenes with roaring sound design and horrifying events. Never has war looked so beautiful yet so grim. One of the few films to use desaturated colors to perfection, truly these are some of the greatest battle scenes ever shot. In the end “FLAGS OF OUR FATHERS” is more than an above average war film. It is a film that is respectful to history, its audience, and most importantly the warriors that serve our country and who risked it all on that fateful day that would be engrained in the American psyche for
