Hail the Conquering Hero: Remembering the Troops in "The Hurt Locker," "Inglourious Basterds" and "Avatar"
Multicultural Perspectives, v12 n4 p213-216 2010
Three recent movies about war are examined. All have been honored by critics and welcomed by audiences. The three movies are very different from one another. They reflect different ways of thinking and feeling about war. More specifically, they represent ways we relate to the troops we send into battle and our concerns about whether we have done and are doing the right things.
