Japablum Sincerity Corner: Letters from Iwo Jima

Once in a while we here at Japablum like to actively ignore the chaotic reality of the world around us and lose ourselves in idle gossip, TV on DVD, and porn. Also movies. And when we enounter something that moves us, we want to pass it on, even if it's a serious film. Ergo, hitherto and forthwith: the new Clint Eastwood movie Letters from Iwo Jima. Go see it now. It's a powerful war story with an atypical point of view, at least for Americans. Of course, it's also a total crashing bummer, but sometimes a leaden sadness is what we go the movies for, right?
