Cross of Iron
I recently reviewed Sam Peckinpah’s World War 2 classic Cross of Iron for Flick Feast:
Sam Peckinpah made a name for himself with ultra-violent movies about groups of tough guys in bloody conflicts and with gritty World War 2 adventure Cross of Iron he certainly stuck to his tried and tested formula. The director is best known for his classic Westerns such as Major Dundee and The Wild Bunch, and this, his only war film, is arguably unjustifiably overlooked. In recent years however, with young directors such as Quentin Tarantino expressing their admiration of the movie (the film provides the clear template for Tarantino’s own bombastic war movie Inglorious Basterds), Cross of Iron has experienced something of a resurgence.
