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

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.

Agripping, impressively detailed account of one harrowing voyage by a German U-boat during World War II.

Petersen's shooting style displays a breathtaking, if impersonal and faintly academic, virtuosity comparable to that of Lean or Coppola.

THE submarine movie. No other sub-flick even comes close.

Consistently riveting and intensely claustrophobic, the Oscar-nominated Das Boot is one of the most thrilling submarine pictures ever made in any language, and still is Wolfgang Petersen's best film by far.
