Few war films are more potent than Das Boot...the ultimate submarine movie. [Blu-ray]

April 24, 2009
It is unlike any other war film in that it confines the audience in a confined submarine where we digest the fear and panic of the human beings on screen. In short, "Das Boot" is a religious experience.
