New uncut masterpiece of Mel Gibson’s “conscientious objector” during the first weeks of the Russian is among the five leaders.
After her radical statements towards Jews, and several drunken fights, actor and Director Mel Gibson was in disgrace nearly a decade. Movie-goers have ceased to hope ever will see again from Gibson movies like the film “the passion of the Christ” or “brave heart”.
But the 60-year-old Mel always knew how to surprise. It happened with the new film. This true story of an American hero of world war II – a real gift for any Director, but filming to catch the soul of even the most demanding audience, only Gibson.
So, “For reasons of conscience” tells the story of a simple guy named Desmond Doss (played by Andrew Garfield). He joined the army as a volunteer. However, undergoing military training, he confuses not only other soldiers, but the entire military elite – Desmond refuses to take up any weapon. He is willing to endure humiliation, and even beatings from other fighters – nothing can destroy his belief in the sanctity of life, even this life, the enemy of his country. Having passed all tests, Desmond still achieves its departure for the front in Japan as a medic.
Didn’t believe in him no, but he proved that he means for his country even more than many of the soldiers or commanders. Slim Doss manages to single-handedly carry on his shoulders from the battlefield 75 soldiers, and then, erecting a kind of hammocks, he pulls them down from a high cliff. One after the other. Within a few hours. Under fire from the Japanese.
A distinctive feature of virtually all directorial works of Gibson is the failure of naturalism. Of course, in the new film abound all the possible consequences of fierce fighting on the soldier’s body. War is war.
The real Desmond Doss has received numerous awards for bravery, including the highest award of the USA – the Medal of Honor, there will always be an example not only for Americans, but for the soldiers of any other country in the world.
He proved that the enemy can be respected, having taken from the field several wounded Japanese. Look at the impeccably shot and played the story of the extraordinary feat that will undoubtedly claim many awards can a movie.
