Automatic TRANSCRIPT

It sits small simple scene and it was like that says everything about who those guys were they did what they had to do they didn't make a big deal about it and then a lot of them came home and got crapped on that's true and you see that to that in a couple of really startling scenes there's no i just i'm so glad that you're bringing it up who's the director william wyler wiler absolutely wiler gregg toland shot had worked over said filmed overseas during the war did he'd make the memphis belle documentary that i think maybe i should know my wiler rottweiler e anna better but it's just i just think again what wyler's that kind of director who much like the characters that you're just describing yes he did draw a lot of attention to himself it's not a bunch of showy camera moves or when they remain this bill the showed the original documentary along with it and it is awesome and frank share frightening i mean those are real bombs but he's the kind of unobtrusive director that i think doesn't get again they don't get their due like it's just easy to overlook because it's so subtle and it's so un showy and i just want to just i feel so strongly about it you know this is the kind of movie that we should be celebrating and should be like it should be up there it's an employee i think it's very important american movie about and as you say it's a perfect snapshot of that timeframe and there's so much of that time period in that moment of time that we still deal with today coming home come close i don't know i don't know why you're not letting me have my best.
