Twelve O’Clock High
Regarding the punishing lengths that some american airmen went to in the early days of wwii, twelve o’clock excessive is a disarmingly frank exam of fight shock.
Scenes installation within the sky are found out thru a smart, seamless mixture of claustrophobic studio paintings and archive footage, but maximum of the drama takes place on the ground, wherein, short on planes and guys, the aim at archbury airbase is to “take nice children and fly em till they can’t take anymore.” the film conveys all of the strangeness and tension of flying a winged metal tube into enemy territory to drop explosives, and praying to get lucky enough not to be blown out of the sky. It’s the strict wellknown savage’s (gregory percent) task to restore morale and get the guys of 918th squadron preventing operational again, however even he has a restriction in those conditions. Preserve a near eye on %’s performance: at the start it may seem one-note, however someplace around the final act the mask of all-american resoluteness starts offevolved to slide, earlier than the actor makes an amazing left-turn within the ultimate moments that also ranks among cinema’s most heartbreaking depictions of combat fatigue.
