[...] Overlord's vision of war is still unlike that of any other fiction feature: more jarring, and more awe-inspiring.

Overlord feels like a small but vivid tragedy inside an epic container.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

The overriding themes of the film are never broadly stated but are subtly revealed, and the horror and reality of war are quietly played out on both the human and panoramic levels with disturbing effect.

Though made 31 years after D-Day, the dramatic scenes have the period look of a '40s movie, which links them perfectly with the stunning archival footage.

Overlord, a prize-winning entry in the 1975 Berlin Film Festival, deserves to join the pantheon of essential World War II combat movies.

It's still a feat of period filmmaking. More than that, Overlord's revivification of a wasteland Europe offers up a powerful whip lesson for the postwar complacent.

The film plays like a 1950's B-movie with artistic pretensions.

Cooper gives it the right understated, unheroic feel.

It's an extremely clever weave of components, combining, almost flawlessly, the dramatized and the archival, the result being a hybrid of forms.

Combines its newsreel and fictional footage so effectively that it has a greater impact than all fiction, or all documentary, could have achieved.
