I decided to watch Das Boot at a rather late hour last night night. I forgot how long it was. It’s a great movie, probably the best submarine movie ever made. Wolfgang Peterson did an amazing job, making you feel like you’re part of the crew. You can understand the panic and confusion that they had to endure while depth charges were dropping around them. The distaste that was shown for the leader of their country was something that i wasn’t expecting, although looking back, it doesn’t surprise me. Just take a look at the current situation in the United States, even though he’s the most powerful man in the world, there is no trouble branding him as an idiot.
